RailComm expands system at BNSF yard

Written by 

RailComm has expanded its existing yard system at BNSF's mechanical facility in Memphis, Tenn. RailComm's Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) System is used to remotely control derails.

The DOC System includes two workstations that allow the user to monitor device status and review operation logs of all system activity. The workstation displays a graphical representation of the yard area, and the user can view all the devices in the field. The system includes RailComm Blue Flag Indicators (BFI) at each of the derail locations. While the track is protected, the BFIs at either end of the track will illuminate.railcomm logo


The system is configured so that certain devices will only be able to be controlled by authorized users.
