• RailTerm provides safe and efficient dispatching services to more than 25 railways across Canada covering over 3,400 miles of track.

Rail Traffic Control Canada

RailTerm’s first RTC service operation began in 1999. Today, RailTerm provides safe and efficient dispatching services to more than 25 railways across Canada covering over 3,400 miles of track. We issue more than 100,000 track authorities per year in the process from our primary dispatch center in Dorval, Qc.

Easy and streamlined integration of new railway operations

RailTerm uses its own rail traffic control software, the TrainMaster, to dispatch freight and passenger railways across Canada. This custom Windows™ based software accommodates both Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) and dark territory/Occupancy Control System (OCS), as well as multiple railway operation rules sets including CP CROR and CN CROR, allowing easy and streamlined integration of new client operations no matter where they are located.

Robust and cybersecure railway communications and IT infrastructures

  • All train control activities are protected through double and triple redundancies to ensure uninterrupted service for our customers
  • Every dispatching desk features a Windows-based platform that accesses train control, bulletin and communication systems
  • Voice communications comprise redundant VoIP, satellite and PSTN copper phone line systems
  • Power supplies are protected by multiple redundancies
  • Our in-house IT and software departments provide 24/7/365 support
  • All communications, both incoming and outgoing, are logged, recorded and can be remotely monitored
  • All authorities are archived and easily retrievable to give customers timely access to important data
  • RTC and supervisory staff have access to live data, using RailTerm’s reporting and analysis systems and MSAT satellite voice communication, which enable constant monitoring of operations in real time

Uninterrupted 24/7/365 Train Operations

In emergency situations, operations can be transferred and quickly resumed at our disaster recovery center, which mirrors our main rail control center in Dorval in terms of both equipment and redundancies.
