The C&O planned US&S CTC for Cheviot, OH to Peru, IN 155 miles in 1951. The project was completed in 1953. The CTC machine was in an office building in Peru four blocks from the railroad. At the time the line had 11 to 15 trains a day, but during the winter with extra coal trains it would rise to between 30 and 35 trains a day. Disk 115
