Upgrade of Dispatcher Job February 21. 2019  Currently   the   Dispatcher   job   on   the   layout   is   not   very   attractive;   it amount   only   to   being   a   clerk   logging   in   the   location   of   trains   from   OS reports   from   a   16   phone   system   distributed   around   the   layout.   In   other words   it   is   in   practice   “one   way,”   with   information   up   to   the   Dispatcher only   and   no   Dispatcher   orders   (Train   Orders)   down   to   yard   masters and   conductor/engineers.   This   is   solely   because   a   phone   call   down   to a   phone   from   DS   never   gets   answered;   we   do   not   have   dedicated Tower    Operators,    because    there    are    in    practice    few    Train    Orders necessary—the entire main line is double track.
