German term or phrase: Fernsteuerung
Die moderne Sicherungs- und Leittechnik ermöglicht eine lückenlose Überwachung des Verkehrsgeschehens und eine automatische, an der Zugnummer gekoppelte, zeitgerechte Einstellung der Zugstrassen. Ein Eingriff des Menschen ist nur noch bei Störungen und /oder Änderungen im Betriebsablauf (Gleissperren, unbenützbare Bahnsteige etc.) notwendig.
Eine Fernsteuerung größerer Bereiche und die Übernehme von Dispositionsaufgaben ist daher möglich.

remote control


Explanation:
I think that the term is ok in this sense, but it is not really the trains which are controlled but rather the complete network (like closed/open gates, traffic lights...)

But I might be wrong here. I think the term "Bereiche" refers back to "Betriebsablauf" (or rather the examples in the brackets).

HTH :-)
