I gave a talk on "Preliminary Analysis and Simulation of Railroad Dispatcher Workload". Surprisingly, the paper received the Best Paper Award at the Human Performance Modeling technical group. Thanks to coauthors Dr. Cummings, Victoria Nneji, and other contributors. Several people came to me after the talk, saying there has not been much literature on railroad dispatchers. There is definitely potential along this line of research.
