In April 1974 the Chicago Railroad Terminal Information System (CURTIS) became operational. This is the first area wide car control system and controls an area the size of Rhode Island using 109 scanners at 40 sites. CRTIS provides four basic reports for member railways: validated interchange documents, system car location reports, empty cars received analysis, and a train activity report for selected railroads of a 24 hour traffic density summary.
