Railroad Hand, Flag and Lamp Signals
The hand or flag, moved the same as the lamp, as illustrated in the following diagrams, gives the same indication, except in the observance of Rule 12a the hand or flag movement may be above the shoulder.
12h. Any object waved violently by anyone on or near the track is a signal to stop.
12i. Signals must be given from a point where they may be plainly seen and in such a way that they cannot be misunderstood. If there is doubt as to the meaning of a signal, or for whom it is intended, it must be regarded as a stop signal.
