The Norwegian State Railway System GTL (1976)

Abstract : In 1976 the Norwegian State Railway System (NSB) planned a new system to keep track of all its freight cars. Among the duties were these: arranging trains at the shifting station in Alnabru outside Oslo, following (tracking) the trains as they moved along the tracks inside Norway, optimization of car maintenance, and statistics. The system could save millions of Norwegian Crowns by better utilization of the car pool. It was named GTL for Gods Transport Ledelse (there is no Divine link; “Gods” simply means cargo in Norwegian). Norsk Data won the contract in competition with US-based mainframe vendors and, against all odds, delivered a system on time that “never failed” for the many years it was in operation.
