Sri Lanka Railways And The Tablet System

Sri Lanka Railways is one of the last remaining railways in the world to continue to use the Tyer’s Tablet system. Meant for use on single-line railway tracks, the ingenious system has been credited with helping prevent accidents on single-line railways around the world. A relic of a bygone era, other countries have gone on to adopt more advanced radio and electronic signalling methods. But in Sri Lanka, Tyer’s Tablets still continue to do their job, day in, day out.
