00:00 Dave Husman presented on one or two move waybills, as opposed to the four cycle waybills many people are familiar with. He gave an overview of CC&WB, his prototype, how he got to his CC&WB format, and what is blocking. He also covered the different types of waybills he uses, and how they are applied as he restages the layout.

In Dale's presentation, he discussed the homemade derail devices he created. Dale describes the devices:
These were made from small Evergreen I- beams and a square stock piece. The sides are beams I shaved the inner flange at the bottom and the outer at the top. The top piece I did not shave at all. Then I added the top square stock to allow me to drill a hole to hole the derails sign. If done correctly, they fit snugly on the code 100 rail.
Here are some images of the devices.
