Thank you for your post Jon.
With your eagle eyes you have seen someting I did not noticed !
Even I don't understand what it means !!
Does this mean in other words : do not bump ! ... ?
Sorry, just my immature and childish (ie: British) sense of humour....!
The sign actually means that the wagon is not to be "hump shunted", which is a form of gravity shunting: Classification yard - Wikipedia
But "hump" can have another, slightly rude meaning to English speakers (something that two people do, or a male dog does to someone's leg), hence finding the sign funny....
