That is what most likely will happen. The RTC can hold the signal at CP 10 and that would force a cab signal downgrade for a train heading southbound at DV curve. But that would not work at the other proposed locations. One thing worth noting about this incident, if train #8808 had been operating on track #4 between CP 12 and CP 11, it would have gotten two can signal downgrades and this incident would never have happened.
I'm stuck on a sandbar on Cape Cod, and I couldn't be happier!!!
