Thus was the telegraph first used in the west as an aid in tram operations. Its use brought new safety •and efficiency to train movements .. .was vital in the rapid expansion of railroads and the development of communities in the west. The union of telegraph and rail operation is taken for granted today. But there were skeptics, back in the 50s, who thought messages in the form of elec- meal impulses would never run a railroad! In the 97-year growth of the Chicago and North Western System the new has constantly replaced the old. "5400" Freight Diesels, recently placed in serv- T . ic e and illustrated here, are examples.
