David Gagnon has posted the 1876 Intercolonial Railway rulebook on his web site. Thanks for posting that! He also shared a lot of information on the ICR itself. Highly recommended.
Every Employee shall make himself thoroughly acquainted with the
Rules and Regulations of the Railway, including those contained in the Working Time-Table of the District in which he is employed; and he shall keep a copy of the same in his possession, under a penalty of one dollar for not doing so.
One dollar would have been a lot in 1876!
