Mark Gredzinski tells the story of Leylands brave attempt at something really different — the T45 Road train.

With only the ageing Marathon and Buffalo in Leyland’s heavy truck portfolio, the new T45 Road train was long overdue to prop up the manufacturer’s fortunes and gain credibility in the marketplace. From its lash-up origins using the old Ergomatic cab pressings, the ungainly Marathon eventually earned its stripes in Mk2 form, but it was desperately in need of replacement.

Ogle Design of Letchworth did the styling work on what was known as the new C4Q cab. alongside the Leyland engineers. The idea was to attack the premium heavyweight market head on and stop the erosion of Leyland dwindling share

Applications of Computer Technology in the distance calculation train radio

D is now to calculate the distance of train radio meter wave band is used the method described in the book «Mobile Communications in rail transport» Vavanova Yu et al.

In order to facilitate and accelerate the process of calculations by this method and to relieve the designer from having to use multiple nomograms, we offer a program computing programmable calculator-type BZ34 and its analogues. The program is designed for the general conditions of the design. Here and below we use the notation adopted in the book: U2min- minimum allowable voltage at the input station locomotive; Gi — stationary

Train safety in the Automation and Remote Control.

West Siberian Railway — the main transport artery of Siberia. It passes through five regions of the Russian Federation. Constituting 7% of the length of the network, 20% highway performs network-wide load and 12% of turnover. The road serves the largest complex in the Kuzbass coal, and coal is about 70% of its structure loading. An important role in the rhythm of traffic plays a farming automation and remote control, which maintains uninterrupted operation of signaling systems and traffic safety. The scope of work for the whole economy in 2007 exceeded 4225 tehn. u For six months of this

Exercise Ample Train

Patrick Allen reports on a major biannual NATO training exercise held for the first time at RAF St Mawgan.

OPERATIONS DENY FLIGHT, the United Nations enforcement of an air-exclusion zone (AEZ) over Bosnia by NATO fighter aircraft, and Warden over Northern Iraq, are practical example of why NATO exercises such as Ample Train are important and necessary.

Operation Deny Flight has already involved up to six NATO air forces, deploying their fighter aircraft to other NATO nation’s airfields to undertake operational missions. These include the Dutch, French, United States and Royal Air Forces operating their fighter aircraft from Italian Air

Before the rail are important tasks for better meet the needs of the economy and population in transportation. Implementation of these objectives is largely determined by the coordinated work of all parts of the transport conveyor, in which the signaling and communication sector plays a major role.

The main purpose of railway automatics and connection is to improve road capacity and safety of trains. These functions will be more successful, the more reliable devices will work. Reliability also depends on the adopted system of maintenance of theoretical and practical training, observance of labor and technological discipline.

As the main


Automation of train control on the subway.

An urgent problem is the technological development of underground development and implementation of automated process control system (APCS). These include control system: the movement of trains, escalators, power supply and other devices.

The greatest effect is given an automated train control system to improve the accuracy and intensity of the movement, release the driver of the large number of management operations by train, using the optimal modes of trains and reduce operating costs.

Currently, the Leningrad subway operated a complex system of automatic train control (KSAUP), and in Moscow — a complex system of automatic train control (KSAUDP). Each
