    Sanders have long been used in GB Rail, where sand is dispensed from the train to improve train traction and braking performance in low adhesion conditions. A recent comprehensive programme of track testing has determined the benefits that could be achieved by: • Variable-rate sanding (i.e. higher sand flow rates at higher speeds), and • Distributed sanding (i.e. multiple sanders distributed along the train).
