As microwave eliminates pole lines, railroad signal departments are confronted with alternatives to their control circuits formerly carried on poles along with communications circuits.

The problem as applied to a specific track segment was the subject of a panel discussion at the AAR Communication and Signal Section meeting in 1977.
