CSX like all other carriers that handle either passengers or HAZMAT on their lines are involved in the upgrading of their signalling equipment on the lines that handle passengers/HAZMAT to comply with the FRA mandated PTC (Positive Train Control) signal system - a system that has yet to set final standards, with implementation mandated to be complete by Dec. 31, 2015. Virtually all legacy signal systems must be replaced to comply with the changes made necessary by PTC and at present there is a shortage of all the necessary components.
When PTC was mandated there was no 'off the shelf' technology that would permit compliance with the mandate; ever since it has been a design and develop as you go project, a project that must be inter-operable among all carriers equipment that operate on the affected lines. PTC is a multi-billion dollar governmental mandate that is being paid for out of carrier investment funds that could be used other projects that could have a better ROI for both safety and the bottom line.
Never too old to have a happy childhood!
