Metro-North taps DeltaRail for WheelChex system

Written by 

London-based DeltaRail Group Ltd. has been awarded a contract by MTA Metro-North Railroad to supply the regional rail carrier with the WheelChex® wheel impact load measuring system, to be installed this summer through the four-track Park Avenue Tunnel leading to and from Grand Central Terminal in New York.

WheelChex will be linked to Metro-North's maintenance systems so that the company can benefit from regular and consistent information on wheel condition. The tunnel handles the vast majority of Metro-North trains.
