No lie detector, this, but serving somewhat the same purpose, the car finds flows in rails. Much in the manner that the Chinese engage medical men to keep them well, rather than to cure their ills, the Milwaukee Road employs this mechanical "doctor" to prevent the possibility of train accidents from defective rails in track. Finds "Rail Cancer" Equipped with the Snost recent devices for the purpose of testing rails in track, in accordance with the standard practice of many railroads, the car moves as a complete self-propelled unit and readily detects certain minute flaws, known as "rail cancer" because the insidious growth is akin to the human ailment, and so small that they cannot be found by other method. By means of a low-voltage electric current, derived from two large generators driven by gasoline engines, a magnetic "field" is set up around each rail. The behavior of this "field" is recorded bv very delicate and sensistive instruments, somewhat akin to radio. When an irregularity is encountered, an indication is made on a moving record tape and simultaneously a paint gun throws a small spot of white paint on the rail at the exact point of defect The car is then stopped and the operator makes a "hand- test" of the rail with a delicate meter which registers the size of the fissure inside the rail. Track Repaired Railroad track men following the detector car on a section car. replace the rail. In this way. rails containing flaws which might develop and weaken the rail structure are taken out of service before the flaw has a chance to grow to dan;- erous proportions. The track tester could not prevent the Montana accident which was due to a suddenly freak weather condition. However, it does save j O 1 many more lives by finding defec- j ^ live rails which in time might cause I O the derailment of a train. j 2 Device Invented by Sperry Railroad officials have characterized the car as one of the greatest contributions to safety assurance yet developed. It was invented by the late Elmer A. Sperry, electrical genius whose inventions include the gyro-stabilizer, gyro-compass, artificial horizon and the high in- tenaity arc light of which an example is the Lindbergh Beacon, atop the Palmolive-Peet building in Chicago.
