At stations such as Rutherford (tracks 1 and 2), where a train on one track received and discharged passengers across the opposing main track, did the Erie have any fixed signals directing a train to stop short of the platform if the other track was occupied (the B&M and SP did this) or were engineers required to approach such stations prepared to stop short if the other track was occupied? I don't recall seeing any such signals on the Erie, but I'm wondering whether there were any locations where fixed wayside signals were used. At Rutherford, would the operator at Rutherford Jct. hold an eastbound at the home signal if a westbound was going to be stopped on track 1? I would seem cumbersome, as that would hold the eastbound to medium speed all the way from the distant signal.
