FRA reports strong Q1 Positive Train Control implementation progress

The FRA said that based upon railroad’s First Quarter 2019 PTC progress reports submitted to FRA by April 30, railroads required to implement PTC are making significant process toward full implementation on required main lines. That is made clear with PTC systems now in operation on almost 48,050 of 58,000 route miles, or nearly 83%, subject to mandated PTC implementation, marking a 3% gain over the fourth quarter of 2018.
