ATC is the NYC automatic train stop system that allowed trains to reach
speeds of I believe as much as 100 in passenger service - sort of an
alternate to cab signals if you will. NYC or PC removed the system from
the Chicago Line of today between Albany and Buffalo (anyhow) when it was
deemed to expensive to maintain - in the '60's some point before Amtrak.
Perhaps someone can fill in details on this one?
