SANTA FE MOVES TRAFFIC BY THE CLOCK

Santa Fe has begun a new type of freight scheduling on its long distance trains. Formerly trains were dispatched on a fleet basis in which trains left once a day (for example Chicago - West Coast trains left in the late morning). As many sections were operated as traffic demanded. Now trains are dispatched at regular intervals (for example, every eight hours on the Chicago - Southern California run). This spreads out the work at the terminals over a larger period and empties the departure areas more frequently.
