Excerpt from The Tiger, Vol. 1: December, 1903

Coming along the Oakland Mole, one can hardly imagine it possible that all the trains are controlled from one place. Yet this is so! Two men have charge of all the traffic on the mole, and it is their business to see that the trains get on the right tracks and in the right places.

About twenty-three years ago the block system was introduced on the mole and no accidents have happened since, they being impossible if the engineer follows the signals.

The first warning that a towerman has of the approach Of a train is from a bell which rings in the tower, and immediately the number of the track on which the train is approaching appears in front of him on the switch-board. He is sup posed to know immediately what train it is and to which track it should be switched. There are four tracks leading on to the mole, and these branch into sixteen switches, making all told about fifty switches to be controlled from Tower No. I.
