A paper by O.S. Nock on facing point protection presented to the Institute of Railway Signal Engineers on Feb. 4, 1959, is summarized. The question how far one should go in applying supplementary precautions against irregular movement of power points by using local track locking and/or revised circuit arrangements, designed to give greater security against the effect of faults, is discussed. It is determined that facing points must be made as safe as the latest techniques can make them.
