PTC

TEXRail earns PTC System Certification

Trinity Metro TEXRail has received certification for Positive Train Control (PTC) from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

PTC is designed to stop a train before an accident occurs. Specific preventions include incidents created by human error, such as train-to-train collisions, derailments that occur from excessive speed, or a train moving through a track switch that was left in the wrong position.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment,” said President and CEO Bob Baulsir. “FRA has very high standards and we are pleased to have achieved certification for this safety enhancement.”

The primary steps achieved this year include conducting extensive testing, known as revenue service demonstration, submitting a safety plan to FRA and achieving interoperability between host and tenant railroads. The FRA granted conditional approval last week to the safety plan and conditional certification of interoperability. Based on FRA standards, conditional certification meets the statutory certification requirement.
