The Federal Railroad Administration has warned Maryland officials the state’s train system is at risk of failing to meet a congressional deadline to install a mandatory safety system by the end of the year.
WRC-TV reported that it obtained copies of warning letters the railroad agency sent, based on work completed so far on implementing Positive Train Control, which is designed to prevent collisions and derailments by automatically slowing or stopping trains.
The Congress ordered the technology that was founded ten years ago, but the companies are constantly looking for delays. Federal Railway Manager Ronald Batory said he believes Congress can miss the deadlines for 12 railroads, including the Marco train in Maryland.
A MARC declaration says it is on track to handle the entire train system on time.
