RAPID TRANSIT--NEW USE FOR HOT BOX DETECTORS

Modification of a standard railroad hot box detector for detection of hot inboard journals on rapid transit cars is described. Installations have been made at scanner sites 1500 ft in advance of the line's two terminals. A dragging equipment detector is also part of the inspection facility. Car maintenance costs have been cut and utilization increased. The hot box detector is now being studied as a method of monitoring traction motor conditions.
