LTK’s Infrastructure Assessment capabilities include alternative analyses to develop the most cost-effective track layouts, whether they be mainline or within yards and whether they're for freight, mixed use or passenger only. LTK also provides infrastructure condition assessment, valuation and operability evaluations, working with the firm’s Systems Engineering practice.
Using our software tools, we can quantify the trip time and capacity of alternative layouts, guiding railroads and transit agencies to the most cost-effective designs. We also provide Geographic Information System (GIS) and field inspection support for rail infrastructure, including track, stations, maintenance facilities, power, signaling, communications, central control, and virtually every other rail asset (including, of course, the rail vehicles themselves). Our GIS capabilities include GPS and track geometry car data collection/synthesis, with support for automated track chart generation.
