BC Rail Train Control System (TCS)
Test Bed System Development, Phase IIMicroform - 1987
Second phase of a 4-phase project to develop and implement a form of advanced train control using data communication between dispatchers, trains and track forces. The second phase upgraded the host computer subsystem, provided a data communication subsystem including radio base stations and on-board train equipment, and tested the system on 2 test beds (normal diesel-engine territory and electric-engine territory involving a 50,000-volt catenary). More than 100 hours of operation in diesel territory and 15 hours in electric territory were the basis for the data.
