D&RGW CENTRALIZES, COMPUTERIZES CTC DISPATCHER CONTROL

Centralized traffic control is not new on the Denver & Rio Grande Western. A pioneer in adapting this technology to more efficient railroad operations, Rio Grande's CTC experience dates back over 30 years. What is new on the Rio Grande is CTC that is both computerized and centralized. To get the story first hand, RSC Editor Al Klinger recently visited Rio Grande's Denver headquarters, inspected the new setup, and talked with the men who conceived, designed and implemented the system. This is his report on Rio Grande's centralized dispatching concept--and also on a computer switch which the designers accomplished in midstream, as it were, in the best pioneering spirit.
