Dispatcher Lee Webster at the C.T.C. panel, Fresno, California

Dispatcher Lee Webster at the C.T.C. panel, Fresno, California
Creator: Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway Company
Date: April 3, 1952
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway's dispatcher Lee Webster works the C.T.C. panel in Fresno, California, that controls the territory between Fresno and Bakersfield, California. Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) is a system of control whereby the railroads employ a dispatcher at a central point, and the dispatcher remotely controls the signals and the routing of trains, and the engineer of a train must obey the signals. CTC bypassed the need for local operators and eliminated written (train) orders.
