COMPARISON OF AMERICAN AND FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY IN RAILWAY SIGNALING AND CONTROL
A comparison of the development history and present status of European, Japanese and American railway signaling and control technologies is presented. Specific emphasis is placed on the present day state of the art equipment in actual use, the differences between the various equipments and the advantages and disadvantages of technology. The foreign systems are discussed with respect to incorporation in American systems as "overlay" upgrading and relative to the overall costs involved. These data are presented to show the requirements for upgrading existing American railroads signaling systems to achieve higher speeds and/or higher traffic densities.
