Key: A = statutory off-duty period (10 hours UDR plus any additional UDR equal to excess limbo time);

B = interim release period at designated terminal; C = less than 4 hours UDR at designated terminal

NOTE 1: does not apply in cases of "other mandatory service" (e.g., rules class) or when other work is not as a train employee.

NOTE 2: if "time off" is at other than a designated terminal it cannot be considered off-duty time.
