The speed indicating and recording equipment manufactured by Elliot Brothers consists of an a.c. tachometer generator mounted on the bogie axlebox and directly coupled to the axle shaft, supplying current proportional to train speed via a wheel diameter compensator to speed indicators in both driving cabs and a graphic speed recorder within the locomotive. Electrical impuses corresponding to distance travelled operate a mileage counter of the cyclometer type. Since all the connections between the various components of the system are electrical, there is complete flexibility in the layout of equipment.
