Extra passenger conductor who lays off at time called for vacancy in passenger service operated out of home terminal of passenger district will not be permitted to work in freight or passenger service until the crew on which the vacancy exists returns to home terminal and there is no junior conductor filling vacancy operated out of an outlying point.  

3. Extra passenger conductor who lays off at time called for vacancy operated out of an outlying point will be required to take such vacancy when reporting for duty unless it has been filled by a senior conductor, and will not be permitted to return to freight service until there is no junior conductor filling vacancy in passenger service.
(b) Extra passenger brakemen will be run first in first out of terminal where extra passenger board is maintained. Extra passenger brakeman filling vacancy on a run which ties up at a point where no extra board is maintained will remain on the run until displaced by the regular brakeman, or as provided in Section (c) of Rule 18. Extra passenger brakemen missing a call will be placed at the foot of the extra board. It is understood that this provision does not estop the management from administering such discipline as it deems proper for missing a call.
Extra brakemen laying off will not be called for service in less than twenty-four hours from the time of laying off if other extra brakemen are available.
