THE DB'S "DO-IT-YOURSELF" TRAIN INFORMATION SERVICE

KUNDENBEDIENTES REISEZUGAUSKUNFTSGERAET DER DB

The DB is using its electronic train data processing system to lighten the work in its passenger information bureaus. The client can make routine enquiries on the running of trains for himself, by using the "do-it-yourself" equipment provided in 24 major stations. The enquirer is connected "on line" with the computer in Frankfurt. The article describes the outward appearance of the equipment, its construction, operation, and method of use. In order to extend the information available to all railway connections between any existing stations, the computer has access to a data bank where the whole timetable is recorded.
