A series of motor coaches equipped with electronic control systems, is described. The fully transistorized electronic control system cuts the grouping and notching contactors in or out according to signals from the master controller, operating on the digital principle. Using electronic equipment resulted in a considerable saving in space and weight. It has also eliminated wear and tear and reduced maintenance accordingly. As far as operation is concerned, the use of electronics is reflected in smooth starting and rapid acceleration. It simplifies the motorman's job of operating the train composition, allowing him to devote more attention to the line ahead.
