FRA Completes Testing Of SEPTA Regional Rail PTC System

Transit News | February 29th, 2016

SEPTA has announced that the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) team has completed their on-site testing of its Regional Rail Positive Train Control (PTC) system. The preliminary results indicate that SEPTA’s signal equipment, vehicles and other infrastructure are working as intended for this important operational safety effort.

This past weekend, the work to upload the software revisions on the Regional Rail cars that will be placed into service when SEPTA begins its PTC Revenue Service Demonstration was completed.

SEPTA says it will continue to work with the FRA to gain an expedited final approval to launch its PTC system on the Warminster Regional Rail Line.
