Pages 124 - 126 of 'Operating the Caledonian Railway Volume One' explain the concept and how it was worked in practice.

There was a concession as to how much of a passenger vehicle was locked off, if you simply had to use it.
I outline in the book the machinations such as splitting specials at Carstairs, and other odd workings in consequence.
