    Default Hand Signals

    Okay, in this video between 5:40-6:00

    The yard foreman signals that he has “Two for Four”

    What does that mean in railroad terms.
    I assume it means, he is supposed to throw four cars but he only throws two at a time.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    One of my best friends ever was a brakeman for the Santa Fe during the time period of that film.
    "Two for Four" means two cars for track 4.
