Summary
  • US railroads are poised to break with the 125-year tradition of relying on the air-breaking system to embrace an electronic breaking system. By using electronic signals to apply brakes on each railcar in a train, railroad companies hope to minimize accidents and derailments, boost line capacity and enhance customer service. Installing electronic braking to a 1.2 million car fleet is expected to cost around $1.5 billion.
