EUROPE'S YARDS

The above covers two articles. The first deals with the present position on the Belgian, British, Czechoslovakian, French, German Federal, Netherlands, Swedish and Swiss Railways, so far as concerns the automation of marshalling yards, from the point of view of the introduction of automatic couplings in 1976, as well as with the experiments carried out on the initiative of the UIC, one in Czechoslovakia in a marshalling yard near Prague, concerning two systems of automatic wagon identification, and the other in Belgium, in Schaerbeek marshalling yard, designed to establish a unified system for the automatic control and centralised management of operations in marshalling yards. The second article, signed by N.P. Solovneva, deals with the methods used by the Soviet Railways in order to provide for the automation of their marshalling yards and the operation of these automated yards.
