In the course of rationalization measures of the Sihltal-Zurich-Uetliberg railway, the zone tariff system with station-based ticket machines and one-man train crews was introduced at the end of 1975. The radio system ensures the connection with the dispatching centre, so that the engine driver is not completely left to his own devices. It also permits remote control of level-crossing barriers and the transmission of the passage report to the signal system. Until now, these operations could not be carried out from the train.
