This survey describes British Railways field experiments on a continuous cab signalling system for speed control and position monitoring. In this system, cables are laid between the rails using a small motorized trolly. Although technical feasibility was demonstrated, little progress was made with the engineering of the system. Problems yet to be solved include physical damage to the cables by platelayers and other workers and the design of a memory device for the locomotive since the cables cannot be continued through points.
