VRE now rolling out Positive Train Control

Post by davinp » Thu Feb 21, 2019 11:13 am

As reported at Friday's Operation Board Meeting:

Mr. Dalton reported that VRE is transitioning from the PTC implementation phase to the roll-out
phase. The first VRE revenue train to operate under full PTC enforcement ran on February 14th.
VRE plans to transition one train to full PTC enforcement approximately every two days
beginning February 25th. Under this plan, VRE service will be under full PTC enforcement on or
before March 27th.
