This photograph shows the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company's Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) board and operator at San Bernardino, California. Centralized Traffic Control 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.

Creator: Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway Company
