Two systems of track-train communications are among those being developed in the United Kingdom for use on train control projects. These are inductive loop communication at low frequencies and communication at radio frequencies using radiating cable. This paper outlines the salient features of the inductive loop system including the method of transmission, system security and special features and details the transmission principles and techniques, choice of frequency and possible applications for radiating cable.
