No, yard limits have nothing to do with meeting area's, Yard limits are used in MBS and ABS territory, where moves normally would require trainorders.
In ABS territory a move against direction would require a trainorder, but in Yard limits the operator or dispatcher only has to give verbal permission.
The move has to be completed and in clear, 5 minutes before the next scheduled train is scheduled to enter the block.
Yard limits are only to facilitate switching without extensive paperwork by both crew and operator and/or dispatcher.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???
