The four major Class I freight railroads confirmed their agreement to establish interoperability standards for Positive Train Control (PTC).

CSX officially joined with the other major US railroads in establishing a national framework for consistent PTC technology and communication infrastructure across their respective networks.

“We are very pleased to achieve this milestone in our joint work on this innovative and important safety enhancement,” said Tony L. Ingram, CSXT’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “This helps assure the US freight rail industry’s continued global leadership in safe and secure transportation.”
