"Train control currently is the function of two factors-a dispatching office and an in-field control system-oftentimes a signal system," says John Samuels, senior vice president, operations planning and support, Norfolk Southern.
"Currently, we depend on locomotive crews to control railroad safety by complying with signals and speed limits, understanding railroad operating procedures, and controlling trains," Samuels says.
In rare occurrences these wheels can hit welds along the tracks and cause fractures," says Samuels.
"If you know immediately that a piece of equipment is defective or not operating properly, you can take the component out of the system, fix it, and with advanced notice, correct that situation," adds Samuels.

John Samuels confirms the color ..., 6 Feb 2007 [cached]
John Samuels confirms the color shift. He began working with Conrail as a consultant in 1976 and joined the company two years later, becoming assistant vice president of industrial engineering.
However, Samuels says the paint alone was not solely responsible for the early lighter blue shade. The original paint would blanch when exposed over time to the sun.
"Laboratory tests found that the original CR blue paint began chalking after only about one year of service, compared to our desire to have a locomotive paint job last eight years," Samuels says.
"The side print was for the public, but the nose print was so Conrail train crews could be reminded of our Quality efforts by seeing that on the nose as they passed each other," Samuels says.
The final paint variation was perhaps the most striking: 30 SD80MACs built by EMD in 1995-96 came with a sweeping "white smile" treatment on the nose - a unique scheme confined to a unique locomotive model. (Only Conrail received SD80MACs.)
"The different paint job was done to make sure both the train crews and repair forces knew the locomotives were different," explains Samuels, who was vice president of mechanical when Conrail placed the order with EMD.
