Railway signaling is a system used to control railway traffic safely, essentially to prevent trains from colliding. Being guided by fixed rails, trains are uniquely susceptible to collision; furthermore, trains cannot stop quickly, and frequently operate at speeds that do not enable them to stop within sighting distance of the driver.

The Railway Signal Dictionary is an illustrated vocabulary of terms which designate American railway signals, their parts, attachments and details of construction, with descriptions of methods of operation and some illustrations of British signals and practice. Hundreds of illustrations - 584 pages.

This collection of twenty-one {21} historic books contains the theory and practice of railway signaling, automatic block signals, interlocking signals, signal circuits, and much more. This comprehensive DVD is a must have for the railroader and model railroader enthusiast.

FORMAT FOR THIS ITEM: All files are in .pdf format
