Main Dispatchers - Poland

Is there a role in Poland routes where a dispatcher monitors and oversees the territory?  I know in North America they used to guide and append scheduled meets if a train was late.  The signal boxes simply followed the schedule and routed trains accordingly and would follow the dispatchers instructions if any changes were to occur.

Thanks

This would be the equivalent of the "Control" in the UK, specifically Network Rail Train Running Controllers (as I used to be). We had no direct means of working signals and indeed were not qualified to do so, however took an overview of the train service and interceded as necessary to instruct signallers about the order of trains or any other service alterations. For example a train operator (also at Control level) might require a train to call additionally at a station where it's not normally platformed. We would advise the signaller accordingly. Likewise the TRC would take the lead when major disruption occurred due to one of many reasons, co-ordinate with the train operators which contingency plan would be implemented or any bespoke amendments. It could be a very busy job especially on the Thames Valley section out of Paddington, where trains were (are) often running on two minute headways as far as Heathrow Airport Junction. Even a "minor" incident such as a track circuit failure could lead to trains queuing up, so you had to act quickly and decisively. The West Country desk encompassed Penzance to about 20 miles from Birmingham, an overview area of some 280 miles (not including various offshoots). Not such an intensive service but one minute you could be dealing with something in the Bristol area, the next West Cornwall - or both at the same time!
