Full Version: Control Tables - the international challenge

Folks,
the control tables in the exams are based on UK mainline layouts with UK principles applied. Most candidates answer using those assumptions but a number provide answers based on other principles which (notably) affects such items as overlaps (particularly swinging), foul/flank protection and approach locking (to be comprehensive or not).
If your administration does not apply the more "complicated" features then the control tables could be a lot easier than when you apply all the bells and whistles of UK practice.
Do any of you have any thoughts or comments on the above?
