ROSENBLATT with a competive bid'of appro Th« Los Angeles Times 'SAN FHANCISCO -- Th railroad switchman, his rec lantern bobbing in the night lie moves among the train stored in the yard, may (lisa ppear with the speed of a van ishing steam engine. Blame it on a computer which can do ills work faste arid cheaper. The beginning of Ihe end fo the switchman may come lat next year, when the San Fran cisco Bay Area Rapid Transi (BART) district opens a slor nge yard where a computer wil direct a half-dozen moving trains and 200 to 300 cars at an one time. A number of railroads computers to aid in handling and storing traffic. However tlie new BART system is con sidered one of the most advanc ed and sophisticated because \'irlually the entire'. Operation'Is run by computer. A 14-inch television' screen, on which typewritten . characters represent cars, wHl enable the jiard masler to know, where al die cars In the yard are fit any moment. This type of total display is unprecedenled -- "It can't be done without Ihe computer," said E,d files, manager of transportation systems for the Phll- co-Ford Corp. which is building the system. The new system is also cheaper. Philco-Ford -won tire contract imately $1.5 million Ries.sai Philco-Ford is a subsidiary the Ford Motor Co. "Doing it the traditional wa wilh old-fashioned relays . an switches, the yard control sy tern would cost $250,000 $500,000 more," Hies common ed.. Most U.S. railroad slora( yards are filled with hand-crani ed switch motors. The switcl man rides on the moving train and jumps down and works 11: switch mechanism to guide th '.rain onto another track. This slow, labor-heavy pro cess will be changed in the Ala meda BART yard: A standard car identificatlo iyslem 1 -- - a n electric-eye '-our feet off the ground, read he serial number on the-sid of.the car and-transmits'it-1 he computer; This happen whenever the car passe hrough a switch, so -the -com mtcr has constant data on th :ar's location. Faster than any man 1 ' wh ever directed traffic-.from pwer, the computer romembei ind uses the ears' locations. ] :an set up a route between an. ivo polnls in the yard afte nly four seconds of calculation The computer Is also respon ible for operating the slop-and o lights along Ihe trains' path lus the switching system tha uts a train onto a new track "The man -running the train ust goes 'until he reaches i top light," said Ries..

"Th'e computer provides the ;owerman with everything he iceds to run the job. The television screen has characters and lines to indicate where ail he cars are stored, and where rains are moving.
