END TO COLLISIONS
Milwaukee Railroad Officials Ex
perimenting With Pre
ventive. AN AUTOMATIC BLOOK DEVICE
Successful Teats Conducted-Gen
eral New of
St. Paul ; railroad offieiuls Thurs'
day witnessed experiments wan a
new automatic block signal device
which will, it is claimed, prevent ab
solutely collisions which are due to
engineers ignoring or mistaking sig
nals. The tests were conducted near
Gravlaud, where four block stations
extending from Pacific Junction in
the suburbs of Chicago to Edgebrook,
111., have been installed. The tests
thus far made arc said to be highly
satisfactory to the officials.
The secret of the mechanism lies
in the fact that whenever an en
gineer passes into a section that is
blocked against him an automatic
Jevice sets the air brakes and stops
the train. Another feature of only
a little less importance is the auto
matic mechanism by which the block
signals are worked and controlled.
The cost of operation is practically
nothing, as the device is operated by
i battery of springs which are won nil
up by the vibratory motion of the
rails as the engines and trains pass
over thein. Accordingly there is no
dejieiidence upon electricity, which is
ever treacherous in nad weather, and
there are no expensive batteries to
look after and recharge.
llrlngs Train to Stop.
In Thursday's experimenting the
tram was run at full speed past a
bloc which is set at "danger." As
soon as the engine entered the prohib
ited station there was a hissing of
steam and a grinding of the shue
against the w'heels, and the train
came to a stop before, its length was
scarcely within the block. Mat ion.
Those who witnessed the experiments
were ready to declare that the device
would revolutionize signal service
and decrease accidents at least 40
It was stated that the device had
been in use for some time upon a sec
tion of the Northwestern Elevated
road and that it had there proved en
tirely satisfactory. During recent,
heavy fogs train after train was au
tomatically stopped after having en
tered into prohibitive blocks, and it
was the only portion of the entire
line where there was no difficulty or
The stopping device, is simple in
construction. I lie setting ol the
danger signal throws two auxiliary
incline rails on top of the train rails.
As the engine runs upon these rails
connection is made with u simple ap
paratus on the engine pilot. A valve
is opened ani the air brakes are set
The semaphores used are the usual
const ruction anil signals are set as
the train passes which protects both
rear and front. Before long addi
tional tests will be made under the
supervision of the St. Paul officials,
and it is probable that in time the
entire system will be equipped with
