Railroads cleared a major hurdle in the race toward the 2015 implementation deadline for Positive Train Control last April, when they submitted their individual implementation plans to the FRA. And now that the FRA has had an opportunity to review those plans, more details are emerging on the challenges that lie ahead.
As the industry prepares for a major transformation, what are the FRA's expectations in regards to the impact of PTC on a railroad? What are some of the issues that remain unresolved? And what are the next steps in the transition to PTC?
Attend this webcast, featuring Mark Hartong, the FRA's senior electronics engineer, and Progressive Railroading managing editor Jeff Stagl, for insights and observations on the status of the industry's most sweeping directive in nearly a century including:
* Emerging trends in design and interoperability
* How railroads plan to tackle the cost of implementation
* The impact of high speed rail on PTC implementation
