The Northwestern railroad will be equipped with electric signals in the near future between Chicago and Barrington. The signal is purely automatic and is operated entirely by electricity, each signal being provided with a special battery, which is placed in a well underground. The signal stands normally at “safety,” and is set to “danger” automatically when the train passes it by the depression of a lever placed about 1,500 feet beyond the second signal. The system is so constructed that the signal will always go to “danger” by its own gravity, should the battery become weakened or any of its connections broken, so that it is absolutely impossible for a signal to indicate safety where danger exists. All of the switches in the block system are connected with the signal, so that the opening of any switch on the main line sets the signal a suitable distance in advance, which will do away with the many accidents which are constantly occurring from misplaced switches. It is, therefore, evident that when the signal stands at “clear” it is indication not only that there is no train ahead within that block, but that all the switches are properly set for through traffic, and also that the apparatus is in perfect working order. The signals will be placed about one-half mile apart.

Charles Lederle expect squit railroading and go into mercatile business.
