IC MOVES CONTROLS TO HQ FOR EFFICIENCY

Illinois Central Railroad is now reaping the benefits of three years of intense planning (1964067) and three years of installation work on their $15.5 million management information system. The microwave system is the central nervous system for the whole railroad. Key to the success is centralization where management and supervision are located and computer power sufficient to handle all data flowing into the headquarters. A detailed description of the microwave system and a map are included.
