POSITIVE TRAIN CONTROL UPDATE

FEBRUARY 26, 2016

The Federal Rail Administration (FRA) team has completed their on-site testing of our Regional Rail Positive Train Control (PTC) system. The preliminary results indicate that our signal equipment, vehicles and other infrastructure are working as intended for this important operational safety effort.

This weekend, the work to upload the software revisions on the Regional Rail cars that will be placed into service when we begin our PTC Revenue Service Demonstration will be completed.

We continue to work with the FRA to gain an expedited final approval to launch our PTC system on the Warminster Regional Rail Line. Please check back for further updates.
