Class II railroad New York, Susquehanna & Western (NYSW) has selected Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Railway Net hosted network, messaging and application platform for Positive Train Control (PTC) implementation requirements.

ARINC RailwayNet, designed for passenger and freight railroads, “creates a common communication infrastructure for PTC solutions, which monitor and control certain train movements to help address rail safety issues, including train-to-train collisions and incursions into work zones,” Rockwell Collins said.

“Our’ service allows for interoperability between the short line and commuter rails with the Class I railroads to deliver PTC safety benefits with reduced operational deployment risks for smaller lines,” said Kenneth Schreder, Vice President, Surface Transportation and Critical Infrastructure Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Through RailwayNet, Rockwell Collins is helping NYSW meet the PTC mandate efficiently, cost effectively and securely.”
