LED Switch Indicator
The new LED switch indicator was developed with the Engineering and Transportation departments in mind to reduce train delays. Signal maintenance can visually inspect switches to determine which switch in the route is failing. With the new LED switch indicator maintenance does not have to go out and test each switch to determine which one is failing. They are able to use the switch indicator to direct them to the specific location. This can also be a big benefit to the transportation side as well when requested to walk their route and hand throw switches. If the switch is indication Normal or Reverse the trainman can visually see this and report the position of the switches in his route. No longer having to unlock and hand throw numerous switches, these enhancements would reduce the length of trains delays, producing a more fluid timeline for train moves. The indicator is overlaid onto the indication circuitry in the switch pothead/junction box.
