Columbus, Ohio-based US Railcar Co. LLC, has acquired the rights to build diesel multiple-unit (DMU) trains based on the designs of Colorado Railcar Corp., which sought to establish itself as a primary source for DMU production in North America. Fort Lupton, Colo.-based Colorado Railcar closed its doors Dec. 23 and terminated all operations Dec. 31.
US Railcar already is touting its newly acquired DMU design, completed with retouched photographs, on its website, http://www.amrailco.com/documents/ARC-Brochure.pdf. The company says its mission is "Bringing the former Colorado Railcar DMU back to life."
The Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI) in Pueblo, Colo., is incorporating RailComm’s DOC® (Domain Operations Controller) Track Warrant Control system into its training program. The training system will include RailComm’s standard TWC capabilities, as well as an interface to Lockheed Martin’s positive train control (PTC) system, called CBAS (Computer Based Authorization System).
The DOC® software-based control system is an advanced command, control, communications, and information (C3i) server-based platform that supports a wide variety of integrated solutions for indication, control, access, and distribution of critical operational data.
