Below is a screen shot on the Waybills main window.
You use the the Edit/Preview view to create a waybill. The active cycle is outlined in a red border.
The body of each of the waybill cycles consists of up to 10 lines for:
Each of the above body lines is optional.
You may also added a Note to the bottom of the waybill cycle as shown here in cycle 1.
Note that a summary of the waybill is given just above the cursor.
CLIC Numbers (optional):
CLIC (Car Location Inventory Control) numbers are used by the Santa Fe (after the mid 1960s) to identify the exact spot on a customer siding where the car should be placed. Other railroads adapted a similar system calling it ZTS for Zone (a town or switching area), Track and Spot.
The CLIC or ZTS number is 3 two digit numbers like (see cycle 2) 30-07-02. The 30 represents the Zone, 07 the Track number and 02 is the Spot location. A warehouse which has 3 doors could have a Spot numbers of 01, 02 and 03 to indicate which door the car is to be spotted.
Using CLIC/ZTS numbers increases the switching complexity (and the fun) for your switching crews.
