Steam traction on the elevated lines was unpopular, and smoke nuisance apart, there was a growing need to increase line capacity beyond what steam traction could provide. In 1895, this need compelled the Chicago Metropolitan West Side Elevated Railway to carry out the first full-scale electrification of a heavy-duty steam railway using the Sprague system (CERA, 113, 1973). During 1893–94, Sprague had introduced multiple-unit control for elevators (lifts) in the New York Postal Telegraph Building, and the technique was used to control trains on electrically operated railways.

Heilmann systematically investigated various electrical systems and components with a view to general railway electrification. He worked at the same time as Sprague but he did not focus to the same extent on rapid-transit systems, though he considered them. He invented the thermal-electric locomotive, and several of those who worked with him were to contribute to electric traction and the use of the internal combustion engine on railways (Duffy, 1989). 2 J. J. Heilmann and electric railway traction Between 1893 and 1897, J.

Sykes installed track circuits to protect platform routes at St Pauls Station, London, on the South Eastern & Chatham Railway. The Great Northern Railway experimented with a track circuited section in 1893, and in 1894 used circuits to protect the routes through Gas Works Tunnel, just outside Kings Cross Station, London. In 1900, the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway installed them at Victoria and Exchange stations, Manchester. These pioneer British systems used track circuits to monitor train position, and helped signalmen working from manual boxes, but the circuits did not control signals automatically.
