ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the book "Interlocking and Train Protection," by Ian Macfarlane. Starting with a vivid description of the head-on collision at Harvey, near Chicago, in 1979, the book contains 13 chapters. It traces the development of interlocking and train control technologies through trial and error, encouraged by accident inspectors and safety authorities around the world. Again and again the author emphasizes the fundamental importance of signaling and train control in a transport mode that relies on a fixed guideway.
