TEXSCAN ANNOUNCES NEW CONTRACTS

 EL PASO, Texas, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Texscan Corporation (AMEX: TSX) announced today that its Op-Tech division based in Bolton, England, has been awarded two important contracts, whose combined values total $1.6 million.
 The first contract continues the division's highly successful presence in the British motorways fiber optic communications program and is for a transmission system to cover the M2O and M2, commonly known in England as the "Kent Corridor."
 With the imminent opening of the "Channel Tunnel," this system will carry video, audio and data and further enhances the existing traffic management and safety control equipment which is regarded as an essential feature of Britain's motorway network.
 In the second contract, Texscan's expertise in the field of passenger related safety systems has been recognized. London Underground, Ltd. had awarded a contract for the provision of "Passenger Help Points," as part of their enhancement program for safety and security. The computer controlled integrated voice and data system will provide passengers with general information, emergency call and fire alarm facilities. The first contract is for the "Bank and Monument Station" which is situated in the heart of the capital's financial and business district. "Passenger Help Points" will eventually equip all of the underground network, which has over 300 subway stations.
 General Manager Brian Fawcett said "the award of the contract for the Passenger Help Points is particularly gratifying in that it has been awarded in the face of still international competition and provides the base for substantial further business."
 Headquartered in El Paso, Texscan Corporation is a leading manufacturer of electronic advertising insertion equipment, CATV distribution electronics, and is a large scale systems integrator for road, rail and subway applications.
