While U.S. has only one automated railroad, the Muskingum Electric which is a private carrier, many facets of railroading short of train operation are already under automatic control. Automation of two other private railroads, the Black Mesa and Lake Powell and the ore-hauling operation of Climax Molybdenum in Colorado, has never been complete despite early reports. The role of railroad labor in automation to date presages little progress in the future. Even remote control of locomotives has not been possible except on industrial railroads.
