The present publication is a complete revision of the 1951 report, "Transportation Lighting" and is the result of a continuing study of current practice, standards and existing installations. It contains current illumination recommendations, a discussion of the basic light sources in use today, maintenance of lighting systems, and a section on typical design methods for lighting specific visual tasks in road and rail conveyances. Since Emergency Lighting is common to all public conveyances, it has been considered as an inherent part of the report itself and, also, as a detailed summary in Appendix A. Electric systems for operating fluorescent lamps in public conveyances and a glossary of lighting terms are included in appendices.
