Periodically, railroaders have to take oral and written tests to see if they know the rules of the company inside & out. This test from the Erie Railroad, dated 1930, was given to new firemen and trainmen who were on the job for 6 months. This examine is 38 pages and contains 324 questions, covering train operations, signal aspects, whistle signals, etc. Tests like this are still given by railroads today.
