BCR PIONEERS COMPUTERISED TRAIN CONTROL USING MICROWAVE RADIO

After 9 years of research British Columbia Railway and Glenayre Electronics have developed a computerized train location, identification and control system--LIC, for short--based on microwave radio. Following successful trials BCR is now installing equipment to cover the 240 km between North Vancouver and Lillooet. In 1982 LIC should take over from the existing CTC. Cost is estimated at 20 percent of that of CTC, including equipping locomotives and cabooses, all communications, construction of a control center and trackside equipment. Transport Canada and provincial funding has made a major contribution to the research and development program.
