As for those big DP manifest trains, there a sweet ride. Only ran one so far, (3X3X2) never did feel any slack.

PTC on UP

Post by frank75014 » Fri Jul 10, 2009 9:19 am

Hello all,

I'm a student in Railways Transportation Systems in Paris and I'm interested in PTC systems installed on the Class 1 RRs: anyone knows whether UP has already some PTC system running? Or future projects?

Thanks guys!

Frank
