COMPUTERS IN RAILROAD CONTROL: THE PROGRESS AND THE PROMISE
Railroad applications of computers and minicomputers are described. Uses include hump classification yards, centralized traffic control, automatic car identification, weigh-in-motion scales, flat yards and other railroad control functions. Forecasts are made about future yard and control functions and about the possibility of on-board miniprocessors.
