“The scope of our work on this project demonstrates the wide-ranging roles that Wabtec can play in the implementation of PTC for our customers,” said Raymond T. Betler, Wabtec president and chief executive of Wabtec, headquartered in Wilmerding, Pa. “We are continuing to invest worldwide in this important segment of our business.”
“Safety is the number one priority for SunRail and the Florida Department of Transportation. Positive Train Control will allow us to increase safety for our customers, crews and the traveling public in general,” said Nicola Liquori, chief executive of SunRail.
SunRail operates more than 60 miles of track through central Florida between Deland and Poinciana. CFRC’s PTC system will be fully interoperable with the system being implemented by all Class I railroads.
