Excerpt from Treatise on Perfect Railway Signaling: Describing the Development of the Electric, Telegraph and Block Signaling Systems, Their Damage and Derangement During Thunderstorms and Explaining the Requirements for Reliable Signaling Special attention has been given to the effects produced upon the automatic block systems using the track circuit, and proper improve ments have been developed which will not only eliminate the annoy ing lightning effects attending such systems, but also greatly increase the reliability and efficiency of the track circuit for signaling purposes. It will be observed that considerable space is devoted to a de scription of all the phenomena attending lightning discharges. This has been done for the reason that correct information thereon is greatly desired by railway men, who recognize its important bearing upon railway signaling.
