Steve: It looks like we are on the set of a James Bond movie here where they kind of control everything, and not exactly what we expected to see when we thought about railroad technology. Explain to us what is going on out here. Mike: The technology, as you can see on our dispatchers’ work stations, they have a graphical overview of their territory showing them all train and engine movements. They authorize those train and engine movements in that territory. Steve: And they are not doing that by Morse code. They are not sitting there tapping something out. I mean, technology and the railroad have really come a long way. Mike: Very much so.
