In a document about a light railway system, speaking about "mit Hilfe von Linienzugbeeinflussung."
Any ideas?

English translation:Automatic Train Control
Explanation:
This is abbreviated ATC. You can read about it on the Web site of Alcatel, or on the URL below. It has nothing to do with linear. The line mentioned means that the trains run on tracks.

Thanks - good reference also.
In the meantime, after asking ProZ, I found the term in the Ernst dictionary defined as "continuous automatic train running control." (very close to your translation).
Thanks again.

linear train control


Explanation:
Die LZB ist ein Zugsicherungs- und Zugsteuerungssystem. Sie sichert die Zugfahrten durch lückenlose Überwachung der Geschwindigkeit und steuert die Zugfahrten mit Hilfe der Führerraumanzeigen oder direkt in Verbindung mit der AFB.

There's quite a few websites with information on this system out there - Google yielded about 140 or so hits. HTH!
