receive a train order, it must not proceed without a Clearance Form

after a proper understanding is obtained with the station agent. The
information entered on the form, illustrated in figure 2.4, must be
without erasures or alterations. The number of orders for the train
and the number of each order must be entered on the form and checked
with the train dispatcher to see if they are identical with those
entered in his record in the train order book. The dispatcher gives
the station agent the OK, time (time that the clearance form was
checked for accuracy), and initials of the chief train dispatcher.
He then makes a record of the clearance in his book.
agent enters the information received on the Clearance Form "A" and
then the clearance along with all train orders are given to those who
are to execute them.
The conductor and engineman must know before leaving that the
numbers shown on the clearance correspond with the orders received
