RE-SIGNALLING THE SCOTTISH SECTION OF THE ELECTRIFIED BR WEST-COAST MAIN LINE TO GLASGOW

Power signaling with remote controls from only two signal-center control panels and incorporating computer-based train describers, is used to monitor 90 miles of track. Power supplies for signaling are generally derived from public sources at 415 V, three-phase, four-wire. The remote control system is fully transistorized and mounted on printed circuit boards. These controls and indications are all simple two-state conditions and scanning is at the rate of 750 bit/sec.
