Silicon Valley Lines: August Ops

My work place today: The dispatcher's desk at Silicon Valley Lines. The first few trains are running on the railroad, and we have a good list of work ahead of us. The SVL Signaling Project has expanded CTC territory, which now covers Fryton to Kaos Jct, with both signals and detection blocks working and dramatically reducing work for the dispatcher.

Since I was the Dispatcher today, I pretty much missed a fun twist in today's session: night operations. We turned off the work lights in the layout room and ran part of the session with the layout lighting set to night mode, operators used flash lights to read paperwork, etc.
