IMPROVEMENTS IN OR RELATING TO GUIDANCE APPARATUS FOR TRACK FOLLOWING VEHICLES

This patent gives details of an invention relating to guidance apparatus for track following vehicles of the kind in which the vehicle is normally guided along the track by a guidance abutment at each side of the track. The invention incorporates left and right hand secondary guidance, which can be moved by a selector on the vehicle. This prevents loss of vehicle guidance at fork junctions. Figures show (1) the plan and end elevation of a vehicle on a track (2) a plan view of a track junction and (3) a detailed end view of co-operating parts of the vehicle and track. Operation of the guidance apparatus is described. /TRRL/
