SUBJECT: Positive Train Control
KEYWORDS: Positive Train Control, PTC, Railroad, Shared Network, ITCM
ABSTRACT: This document describes the initial development of an ITC PTC Shared Network (IPSN), a hosted environment to support the distribution, configuration management, and IT governance of Interoperable Train Control (ITC) Positive Train Control (PTC) systems between short line and commuter railroads and Class I railroads. This effort is focused on ITC-compliant I-ETMS PTC Systems, which will allow the IPSN to support interoperability for train initialization and PTC-supported operations between tenant railroads and their host railroad partners and between host railroads while operating in each other’s territory.
