PTC ENABLED. CP 518 to CP 453 CHICAGO LINE

Unread postby LakeATCS » Fri Nov 03, 2017 6:13 pm

Effective 12:01pm Today.

NS will begin operation of the PTC system between CP-518 to CP-453.

It won't be all trains. Excluded are any trains with a leader that isn't PTC equipped.

Should be interesting!

And now a second notice on the PTC stuff.

ONLY trains 30Q and 31Q will be operated with the PTC system active.

Even when all trains are being operated on PTC, the following will be excluded.

Trains with a foreign loco
Trains with 15 cars or less.
Movements with only locomotives (no cars)

Trains operating on PTC mode, must fill out a PTC Post Trip Form

Isn't 30Q and 31Q a Elkhart to Calumet junk interchange freight? Guess an easy to train to keep PTC enabled stuff on that no one gives a rats arse about delaying LOL.

I wonder if this will be extended east to CP-421 or CP-412 once CP-437 is cut over?

I also note that CP-453 is in LaPorte County. CP-448 is in St Joseph County (along with CP-437 and CP-435 with CP-426 at the Elkhart county line).

It is good to see NS start using the new equipment.

CP 448 needs to be updated too, I believe.

One more county (plus a few hundred feet). Thanks for the update.
