TTCI PREPARES FOR HIGH SPEED RAIL
Amtrak's Northeast Corridor (NEC) high speed trainsets have been tested at the Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI) in Pueblo, Colorado. An upgrade to the facility was necessary to allow high speed testing. The upgraded railroad test track (RTT), originally used for performance and evaluation testing of Amtrak's NEC trainsets, is expected to function as a key research and test facility for future high speed rail equipment and technologies. Typical test regimes include high speed stability, energy consumption, electromagnetic interference, high-cant deficiency, acceleration and braking, wheel slip and slide, endurance testing, and exhaust control.
