Train Detection and Control

TRAIN DETECTION AND CONTROL is the fifth volume in the series titled ‘The History and Development of Railway Signalling in the British Isles’. Written by Tony Pinkstone and Mike Peart, this volume looks at the development of train detection from its earliest uses at the dawn of railways through to the high speed lines of today. It shows how equipment needed to keep pace and maintain safety with increases in railway lines' capacity and speeds in all weathers. Engineering and technological developments in track circuiting, axle counters, treadles and other detection equipment are covered in detail. Footplate systems such as Automatic Train Control, Automatic Warning System and Train Protection and Warning System, all of which have seen extensive development are examined along with some inventors’ systems that didn’t make the grade. Above all, the quest for greater safety and learning the lessons from real-life incidents are fully described
