He remains entirely in the background- however, his influence is exerted through all tower andstation operations along the way who copy and deliver his instructions to the passing train crews. He is the train dispatcher.Singletrack railroading does not change geographically- however the inherent danger in operating opposing trains on the same track does not lessen with the locale. Planning well in advance, exercising a keen mind,issuing proper orders, and making certain they are understood represent the contribution a train dispatcher can make to safe, efficient train movement.Properly interpreting and executing the orders rest with the road crews hauling the moving trains.While no text can possibly qualify you as a train dispatcher, an understanding of the fundamentals of the subject should place you in a better position to carry out any military assignment you may receive thatinvolves moving troops and supplies by rail. The scope of this subcourse covers the basic principles and fundamentals of dispatching- the duties of those in the dispatch office- dispatcher communications- the right and superiority of trains- and samples of different train orders.
