"The Great Western Railway are equipping their engines with an automatic device which prevents a driver from passing a danger signal in foggy weather. If the signal is at danger a ramp in the track operates an attachment to the engine which in its turn applies the vacuum brake. A clear road is indicated by the ringing of a bell in the cab", 15 Nov 1928.
