CSXT enlists RailComm to provide remote control derails at Willard Car Shop

CSX Transportation recently selected RailComm Inc. to provide a wireless remote control derail system at Willard Car Shop in Willard, Ohio.

Controlled from a centrally located push-button control panel, the system includes blue strobe lights to indicate derail status; over-the-derail protection circuitry, which is designed to prevent derail operation while a train is in the protection zone.

RailComm's DOC® (Domain Operations Controller) software logs the name and trade of each craft controlling the derail, along with the date and time of derail control activity. The information, which can be used in Federal Railroad Administration reporting, eliminates the need for a manual logging process.
