1:33 am
control is the solution. this has been confirmed this week by the ntsb and it is all about traffic control systems like you see in the highway control systems invented by augustus morgan in 1923. he was the first to own automobiles in cleveland, black history month. the key thing is to stop these trains, automatically stop them when they see obstruction and feed control. had to slow the train down to negotiate the turn before it went into the interstate highway system. and need to look at if there is obstruction as control begins to break the system but more importantly positive train control looked ahead of the track, and off course, onto a stationary freight train.

we are lucky about amtrak because what if the train hit a ball? we would have had a lot more injuries on that event. trains are essentially aircraft structures rolling on the ground. we need to have the same type of digital cockpit communication inside these engines like we have on the air buses, boeing aircraft. imagine if we did not have positive claim control, air traffic control come a we would be in a lot of trouble. rob: we have been working on the system, positive train control, for quite a few years, look at the deadlines we have passed, 2008 congress required installation of train control system by the end of 2015. congress extended the deadline to install ptc by three years, we are in 2018, the new deadline is 2020.
