Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Linienzugbeeinflussung is a cab signalling and train protection system used on selected German and Austrian railway lines as well as the AVE in Spain. In Germany, the system is mandatory on all lines where trains exceed speeds of 160 km/h, but it is also used on some slower lines to increase capacity. The German Linienzugbeeinflussung translates to continuous train control, literally: linear train influencing. It is also called linienf rmige Zugbeeinflussung. In Germany, the standard distance from a distant signal to its home signal is 1,000 m. On a train with strong brakes, this is the braking distance from 160 km/h. In the 1960s Germany evaluated various options to increase speeds, including increasing the distance between distant and home signals, adding additional aspects, and cab signalling. Increasing the distance between the home and distant signals would decrease capacity.
