The more mileage and passenger volume, the more chances for mishaps. Even early on in New York City"s subway system, mismanagement caused the deaths of 100 subway passengers in the Malbone Street subway accident.

If possible to find a method for monitoring all movements, and position of each the train without having to use hardware or software of the digital computer, but by using the analog devices, to avoid the fatalities incident.
