RailComm to provide train control system to Northshore Mining

Written by Jenifer Nunez, assistant editor

RailComm has been chosen to provide its Domain Operations Controller (DOC) train control system for Northshore Mining in Silver Bar, Minn.

The DOC system will have functionality for Centralized Traffic Control through its web-enabled software-as-a-service delivery method. RailComm SaaS provides a “pay-as-you-go” model by hosting the applications in the Cloud, thus eliminating capital equipment procurement constraints.

Northshore Mining will have the ability to dispatch their railroad wherever an internet connection is available. Therefore, it is possible to relocate the dispatchers to alternative locations as required. Additionally, railroad management will be able to log in from the office, home or from a hotel and directly view dispatching activity and management reports.
