CBTC already on the L?

Recommended Posts

i saw sign today that says "comunacation based train controls you may have to call an operator in order to contact" (i frogot the rest) but when a (L) train was comming there was a person inside. i thought CBTC meant controls that sends it to the train so nobody has to be in thier? but did the (L) line get CBTC:confused:

CBTC stands for "Communications Based Train Control" basically in a nutshell what it does is the signals are relayed directly to the T/O In the cab and the train enforces the "rules of the road" directly. But the T/O still operates the train. However only part of the (L)arry line is CBTC, and some of the trains are having trouble with it, so you will hear the phrase "running in bypass" used about a lot of the R143 cars that run on the line. Running in bypass means the CBTC is "bypassed" and the train is just following normal block signals and operated by the T/O.

 

If a train is using CBTC, the signals in front of it will flash green. Otherwise, they will appear as normal. The R160's on the line are not CBTC equipped, only the R143's.

Just alittle currection the whole (L) Line is CBTC just some signals don't flash and the T/O must operate via Signals and computer which comes into play when your following another train.

I don't like CBTC and picked off the line because of the problems with CBTC that can cause a T/O to be removed from service. Anytime the systerm fails and puts a train brakes in emergency the read it is almost always "Train Operator Overspeed" so its always easier to write up the T/O instead of checking everything out. In most cases the T/O got to fight the chages and then get cleared. So I'm off the line and lots of jobs were open behind me which is setting up the (L) line to be a rookie line. The supervison can't be happy they spend money just to train your for CBTC then leave the line so they have to train some more people and spend more money.

I'm going to be full time on the (C) next pick.
