On Aug 19 the MTA issued a press release advising the 94% of LIRR trackage is PTC operational.
Am I understanding correctly that, except for the interlocking limits of Harold, and between Jay and Hall there is PTC? Is LIRR using the same ACSES that Amtrak and Metro-North use?

The news article also mentioned some incompatibility issues between LIRR and Amtrak at Harold Interlocking. But it's either the same or a similar system. I have heard LIRR dispatchers on the radio talking with train engineers about ACSES system issues.

LIRR uses ACSES II with weird aspect believed that Amtrak doesn't use .
Amtrak did the East River Tunnel ACSES install,,Harold interlocking is still in a state of Flux with ESA project and the Cab signals /ACSES under constant revision.
