North Coast rail tech goes digital

A MILESTONE has been achieved in the upgrade of the rail line between Casino and Grafton with the final removal of the post war (1940s) openwire lineroute signal technology by Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC).

With the upgrade of the Northern Rail link to Central Train Control (CTC) technology, the redundant lineroute was removed marking the end of an era in Australian rail history on the North Coast.

One hundred kilometres of signalling have been removed, replaced by new digital technology.
