In computer-supported train-running supervision, the supervisory function is exercised with the aid of a computer system, with decentral microcomputers at the stations following the train movements. These microcomputers are linked with each other and with the control centre. There a central process computer system evaluates the results of the tracking of train movements and represents these in the form of time-distance lines. These together with the automatically determined schedule deviations provide the basic information for the control-centre personnel, who then transmit their instructions by telephone or by train radio. All operational sequences are tape-recorded.
