ZTR Control Systems, a London, Ontario-based global provider of control and monitoring systems for the railway market, announced Oct. 27, 2015 that its Manager of Engineering, Amarjit Soora, has been honored by the Locomotive Maintenance Officers Association (LMOA) Executive Board with the 2015 Most Valuable Person (MVP) award “in recognition and appreciation of the meritorious service and significant contributions made to the LMOA Diesel Electrical Committee.”

Soora, who has been a member of the LMOA Diesel Electrical Committee for almost three years, said he was “surprised, delighted and grateful” when notified of this recognition. Soora added that what he values most about his membership on the committee is the “knowledge exchange with so many seasoned experts in the industry, even with competitors.” For the past three years, Soora has published white papers and presented at the annual Railway Interchange tradeshow, with his first of those presentations being about diagnostics.

“I’m most excited about how diagnostics and information management will change the rail industry in the future,” Soora said. “As we move technology forward, it’s an exciting time to be involved in LMOA and ZTR is a valuable contributor.”

Soora has now been appointed Vice Chair of the Diesel Electrical Committee 2016.
