An accident occurred in March 1940, on a single line between Aviemore and Carrbridge, on the L.M.S.R., when a number of cars became detached and ran back to meet an oncoming train. The accident report recommended that electrically operated catchpoints be installed north of Carrbridge. The signalling layout is shown indicating the general layout of the section and the gradient profile. The circuits designed to ensure proper control being obtained over the working of the points is illustrated. The process for operating the signalling system is described.
