The possibilities of using thermoelectric generators (TEG) as independent power sources for signal, communications, and block systems on railroad lines, as well as for other purposes, are discussed. The advantages of the TEG over ordinary storage batteries are given. It is felt that thermoelectric generators have a promising future as power sources for railroad application and that they may well supplant storage batteries in many cases. (Author)
