Railway is the most economist mode for transport in the world. The signaling in the railways plays the vital role to direct the trains in a right way at right speed towards the destination. In railways a single miscommunication in the signaling may lead to catastrophe. This design makes an approach to improve the mode of communication (signalling) using ARM 8 processor and to avoid the train collision using semaphore signaling. The location of the train is detected at various parts of same track and it transfers through GSM technology with the control of ARM Processor When two trains travel in same track the current location of the train is sent to the control station. GSM network transfer the data immediately to the control station from the station, alert signal is fed to the pilot and the collision can be avoided. On the other hand the warning signal and controlling signals to the train can also be transferred to the loco pilot using Power Line Carrier Communication (PLCC).Thus PLCC avoids signal cables nexus.
