Due to (современны e сигнальны e системы) trains can give signals themselves. Еntering the next section, each train (менять сигнал) behind it to red. When it then (подходить к следующему участку), the red light which is now two sections behind it changes to yellow. The red signal is lit up immediately behind the train. When the train (входить) the next section the first signal (переключиться на зеленый). Thus, every train has behind it (сначала) a red, (затем) a yellow, (и в конце концов) a green signal. All these operations (выполняться при помощи рельсовой цепи). Simple rail circuit is the basis of (современная сигнальная система). The principle of operation is that (весь путь) is divided into sections, (изолированный) from each other. A low voltage electric current (проходить через один рельс) to the end of the section and then back along the other rail. When a train enters a section it brakes (цепь). (Ток ) passes through its wheels and axis. When the train (покидать) a section, current runs along the rails. The change in the track current (можно легко обнаружить). In this way many electrical apparatus (управляться ).
Ex. 12. Match the terms in line A with their definitions in line B:
Richard Trevithick (April 13, 1771 – April 22, 1833) was a British inventor, mining engineer and builder of the first working railway steam locomotive. Trevithick built a full-size steam road locomotive in 1801 on a site near the present day Fore Street at Camborne. He named the carriage 'Puffing Devil' and, on Christmas Eve that year, he demonstrated it by successfully carrying several men up Fore Street and then continuing on up Camborne Hill, from Camborne Cross, to the nearby village of Beacon with his cousin and associate, Andrew Vivian, steering. This event is believed by many to be the first demonstration of transportation by (steam) auto-motive power and it later inspired the popular Cornish folk song "Camborne Hill". During further tests, Trevithick's locomotive broke down 3 days later, after passing over a gully in the road. The vehicle was left under some shelter with the fire still burning whilst the operators retired to a nearby public house for a meal of roast goose and drinks. Meanwhile the water boiled off, the engine overheated and the whole machine burnt out, completely destroying it. Trevithick however did not consider this episode a serious setback but more a case of operator error.
