1. OVERVIEW: This "historic" video was originally distributed in 1992 as part of the six-tape 'V9202' videotape series. This Part 1 (edited to 18 minutes) is the introduction. This material was 'new' in 1992, but now overlaps the approximately ten Autocontrols Largescale videos that have been previously uploaded to Youtube and Vimeo.
It DOES have some unique footage, showing five trains operating on a large 80-foot long loop controlled by an automatic block and an automatic passing siding, showing the now discontinued APS Electric Eye Control, showing how a handcar can "bounce" between two trains controlled by an automatic block, and shows Tom Flynn's five-track automatic passing siding in operation.
