Pan Am v. PTC implementation

Postby johnpbarlow » Sat Dec 16, 2017 8:28 am

Springfield Terminal/B&M's FRA-approved "plan" for PTC implementation between Worcester and Mattawamkeag (ie doesn't include PAS track) is documented at the FRA website:

The word plan is in quotation fingers because ST/B&M successfully applied for a "Main Line Track Exclusion - Limited Operations Exemption":

A Limited Operations Exception is being requested by ST/B&M under FRA Rule §236.1019(c) (2) (ii) for:
 Railroads that are not a Class I railroad and on which less than 15 million gross tons “MGT” of freight traffic are transported annually and
 That any segment is signaled and no more than 12 regularly scheduled passenger trains are operated during a calendar day.

I can't seem to find a Pan Am Southern PTC implementation plan on the FRA site...
