PHILADELPHIA – Amtrak has activated positive train control technology on the Northeast Corridor between New York City and Philadelphia, the Wall Street Journal reports. The rollout took place over the weekend.

“This is just an added layer of safety,” says D.J. Stadtler, executive vice president who oversees operations for Amtrak. “The railroad before this was put in place was already safe.”

The system in use, known as "ACSES" for Advanced Civil Speed Enforcement System, was developed by Alstom.

Amtrak shares the line with NJ Transit and Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority commuter trains, as well as freight traffic.
