AUTOMATION OF MARSHALLING YARDS AT THE SNCF

L'AUTOMATISATION DES TRIAGES A LA SNCF

Automation in the yards mainly concerns two functions: control of switches and crossovers and control of retarders. The humping technique currently used requires two different sets of retarders at intervals; the orders given by the brake servo come from a mini or microcomputer. The article recounts the development of automation and outlines future trends.
