HOW A DIGITAL COMPUTER CONTROLS A CLASS YARD

A detailed description of the successive operations carried out in a marshalling yard, between the time of arrival of a train and the departure of a train formed of wagons marshalled on the sorting sidings. An explanation is given of the role of the electronic computer, which assembles and stores all the data, as and when the marshalling operations proceed, and transmits the necessary instructions in turn to the different sections of the marshalling yard.
