    Automatic fare collection was first used on the London Underground in the early 1960s. Further development of the present system is limited, however, by the technology used and lack of reliability. The paper describes the new ticketing system for the London Underground, which was tested in public service between November 1982 and July 1983, at Vauxhall station. The new system is now being installe... View full abstract»

    The AC induction motor drive has been the subject of wide investigations since the middle of the 1960s. Today it is not only a scheme but a service proven system that is rapidly finding acceptance by more and more transit authorities worldwide. The paper describes the experience with three vehicle fleets with AC propulsion drives which are in service. Strömberg's AC traction drives have been used... View full abstract»

    For a number of years, British Rail (BR) has been working towards an electronic replacement for the electromechanical interlockings which are at the heart of railway signalling systems. This work has led to the successful development of the BR solid-state interlocking, an all-electronic signalling system for mainline application which has been in operation at Leamington Spa, Warks., UK, since Sept...

    Computerised installations linked to the signalling in French Railways bring computer techniques to signal boxes as operational aids. The first installation, in 1977, was that in the Versailles Chantiers signal box, near Paris. This signal box manages many routes in a complicated area. The second installation, at about the same time, was that involving the traffic management on two 50 km double tr... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the characteristics of track monitoring systems used in West Germany, and how their performance has been affected by the introduction of electronic traction control, and by the trend towards high train speeds and increased traffic density. The problems arising from these aspects of railway modernisation are being solved by the introduction of a new generation of track monitorin... View full abstract»
