COLLISIONS ABE IMPOSSIBILITY
Location of Trains and Obstructions
on the Tracks Plainly
Experts of the Chicago. Durlington
x- (Juincv raiiroul arc at present ton-
ducting a series of extren elv interest
ing tests of a nexv system of railroad
signaling, which promises to revolu
tionize the present method of regulat
ing traffic and to make railroad col
lisions almost an impossibilit v.
Every train is to he its oxvn auti
n.atic siriutl toxxer. raising and loxver-
ing the signal boards on each semi-
plu re as it 'moves along just as far
head anil behind as max' be desired.
As long as one train is in the block
the signals r.niain automatically set at
'("anger" to keep all ether trains out.
The signals ex-en do more than that.
The indicate just xxhere the train is
on the block and in xxhat direction it is
moving. If 'he train should stop and
and commence to back tip. all the sig
nals xx it hiii the block xvould immerii-
ltely indicate that fact by turning the
semaphore in the opposite direction.
For the purpose of explaining just
hoxv the nexv signals are operated, xve
xxill suppose that a double track rail
road 20 miles long has been equipped
xvith the nexx- toxvers. These toxvers
ire placed one mile apart from end to
end of the line.
Shown on Stinaphoies.
A tiain starts nut from one end of
the line and instantly the semaphores
on the toxvers -tationed one mile and
txvo miles ahead along the railroad re
cord that fact by loxvering the signal
arm to right angles as a signal to
everything el.-e moveable to keep off
the track. Simultaneously the tower
Ht the railroad terminus which the
train js leaving sets a signal xvhich. be
ing interpreted, means that there is a
train on the track a short tii.-tiuce
ahead and no other train ninvt start
after it until the line is clear.
In this xx ay the train is pivjte-'ted by
signals txvo miles in fron. and txo
miles in the rear throughout its jour
ney from one end of t,h Tim. to the
other. The instant a train has traxcl
ed txxo miJes beyond a signal tower
the semaphore is released ard points
skyxvard again, opening that road for
the next train.
Of course, if preferred, the signal
toxvers can be placed much closer to
gether. That is a xery simple matter
to arrange. The trains can travel on
mile apart or even less if dslrd.
15y the use of this system an engin
eer can alxvays locate the train ahead
of him and dvtcrmine the direeticn
in xx Inch it is moving by. the xvay in
xvhich the semaphore arm is pointing.
At the same time his train is protected
by txvo railroad or signal blocks ahead
and the same disianee in the rear
against other trains on the same line.
Broken Train Protected.
In case a train should break n two
r.nd the broken part remain Manding
on tin track the signals xxill protect it
txvo blocks before and behind. Should
the broken part run back it xxill im
mediately operate signals two blocks
ahead and txvo blocks in the rear. The
engineer of the next train toxxard
xvhich the broken part is -inning xill
be made aware of the fact by the x af
file signals are set. He xxill take pro
vision accordingly to avoid the im
One of the most valuable and ingen
ious features of the system deals xxith
obstructions on the track. If a rail
or a bridge should break, the signals
xxill immediately point to danger txxo
miles or blocks in cither direction
