Safety Documentation Templates and Services to Meet Host Railroad Requirements
Collins Aerospace (Collins) is easing the burden for PTC tenant railroads to obtain permission to operate over their host railroads’ PTC territories. As part of an FRA-funded grant awarded to ASLRRA, Collins is assisting ASLRRA member roads through the development of a set of helpful Safety Plan Template documents that provide:
- An enumerated list of typical host railroad requirements, with descriptions of the requirements and recommendations for meeting them;
- Tips for discussions with PTC hosting services to ensure complete coverage of host requirements;
- Annotated outlines of selected recommended documents that provide evidence of compliance; and
- A cross-reference template to map host requirements to the tenant’s evidence of compliance
Collins will work with individual PTC tenant railroads to apply these materials to have effective discussions with the host railroad (s) to quickly and efficiently obtain permission to operate over the host’s PTC territory.
