Wabtec inks $9 million pact to provide PTC equipment and services for NCTD

Wabtec has signed a $9 million contract with Herzog Technologies Inc. to provide positive train control (PTC) equipment and services for North County Transit District (NCTD), an Oceanside, Calif.-based agency that operates Coaster commuter-rail and Sprinter light-rail services.

The contract includes an option worth an additional $5 million.

Wabtec will provide its Interoperable Electronic Train Management System equipment to be installed on seven locomotives and 10 passenger transit cab cars on NCTD's Coaster line. The company also will provide back office engineering and systems integration support services.

The NCTD system will be fully interoperable with PTC systems being implemented by Class Is, according to a prepared statement.

Herzog Technologies was previously awarded a contract to implement PTC for NCTD, a regional transportation network that provides more than 12 million passenger trips annually and has about 60 miles of track.
