Saginaw Bay Southern installs RailComm CTC system


The Saginaw Bay Southern Railway has a new centralized traffic control (CTC) system.

RailComm Inc. recently designed, installed and cutover the DOC® dispatch system for the 67-mile Michigan short line, which actually comprises several rail properties (aka “The Saginaw Cluster”) owned by Lake State Railway Co. The lines run northward from Mt. Morris to Saginaw, Mich., with branches to Bay City, Midland and Paines, Mich.

RailComm’s DOC® CTC is a computer-aided dispatching system designed to centrally control signal systems and interlockings. DOC® is an advanced command and control communications and information server-based platform that supports a variety of integrated solutions for indication, control, access and distribution of critical operational data railroad-wide.
