This here is a Hear-Here. Back in the day before Scada and automation became king, station operators got a on conference call every hour to relay pressures to the gas controller who would then tell (not ask) them to make adjustments. You can still see the remnants of those practices in a few stations, the big clocks in the engine room, telephone booths, chart recorders, etc. Another fun fact, those operators gossiped like a sewing circle. So if you broke a taillight in Houma, LA, the crew in Newark, NJ, knew the whole story within the hour. Want to know more?
