A COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION ON THE CONSPICUITY OF THREE RAILWAY SHUNTING LANTERNS

EEN VERGELIJKEND ONDERZOEK NAAR DE OPVALLENDHEID VAN DRIE NS RANGEERLANTAARNS

Three types of shunting-lanterns are mutually compared as to intensity, beam divergence and flash character, with conspicuity as criterion. The models with so called "sandershead" and "whelenhead" turned out to be better than that with "fresnelhead", but it was difficult to decide between the first two. In fact it was found that both models fell short in light intensity in comparison with present day standards. Suggestions are made to explore further possibilities for improvements.(a)
