UP expands RailComm DOC® Yard Automation System

Written by 

RailComm has expanded its wireless remote control yard system at Union Pacific's Davidson Yard in Fort Worth, Texas. The U.S. Department of Transportation had requested the redirection of the hump yard lead tracks in order to keep traffic flowing while a new highway overpass is being constructed.

RailComm's Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) System provides remote control to the redirected switch machines using the existing DOC® System servers. A new DOC® system workstation was added to the DQ building.
