rear end collisions of railway trains.
The signal consists of an iron box,
about four inches square, in which is
inclosed a torpedo. This box is fast
ened to the outside base of the rail, at

thrown to ta siding it sets square on the
rail and explodes when struck by the
engine of the rear train, thus giving
time for the train to be stopped and
prevent a collision.
