red. The "talking fence" has flashed its
warning to the engineer.
Technically known as the "slide detector
fence", it is erected parallel to Union Pa

rocks, trees or other possible obstruc

breaks an electrical contact, "setting up"
signals miles down the track to warn
trains approaching in either direction. A
trainman must then make a thorough
inspection before trains can proceed-

over its Strategic Middle Route uniting
the East with the Pacific Coast.
The "talking fence" is but one of the many
