ELECTRICAL HEATING OF RAILWAY POINTS

The heaters are attached by strips held in position by the existing permanent-way coach screws and small bolts through the rails. This form of heating can be readily fixed in position with considerable ease and the only precaution to observe is that the matting surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and the element attached as closely as possible to the rail.
