|20140111321||LOCAL WIRELESS NETWORK REMOTE CONTROL OF ANCILLARY RAILWAY IMPLEMENTS - Systems and methods for local wireless network remote control of ancillary railway implements are described herein. In one implementation, a portable computing module uses a wireless module to control an ancillary railway implement. In one implementation, the portable computing module connects through ancillary railway implement to control one or more nodes, where the nodes are additional ancillary railway implements.||04-24-2014|
|20140034785||GATE MONITORING SYSTEM - A monitoring system and method is provided for monitoring the lighting and the gate arm position at a railroad crossing.||02-06-2014|
|20130250999||THERMOCOUPLE WITH INTEGRITY MONITORING - According to one embodiment of the present disclosure a thermocouple is provided that includes an electrical component, such as a resistor, at or in close proximity to a junction where the temperature is expected to be measured. By monitoring analog voltage measurements, the system determines, for example, whether the measured temperature actually represents a temperature reading at the junction or whether the thermocouple has been compromised due to one or more of a variety of health issues, such as, a short circuit in the thermocouple, thereby causing a false junction.||09-26-2013|
|20130240680||RAILWAY TRACK SWITCH COVER SYSTEM - The present disclosure provides a track switch cover system and method. The system and method allows for easy installation and removal of track switch covers as well as quick and easy access to the switch mechanism shrouded by the covers||09-19-2013|
|20130220991||LOAD BALANCED TRACK SWITCH HEATING - An electrical load balanced heating system and method. The load balanced heating system and method is configured to facilitate smooth electrical operation as well as energy savings. The system is configured to group the heating elements based on load characteristics of the heating elements and turn the groups on and off sequentially in a matter that promote efficient and smooth operations.||08-29-2013|
|20130056587||RAILWAY SNOW MELTER DUCT ASSEMBLY - The present disclosure relates to a component for a railway snow melter. The component includes a mounting plate adapted for connection to a tie duct. The mounting plate defines a point nozzle opening and/or a track duct nozzle. A point nozzle is mounted to the mounting plate at a location above the point nozzle opening. A track duct nozzle is mounted to the mounting plate at a location above the track duct nozzle opening.||03-07-2013|
|20110284698||GATE MONITORING SYSTEM - A monitoring system and method is provided for monitoring the lighting and the gate arm position at a railroad crossing.||11-24-2011|
|20100251579||RAILROAD SNOW REMOVAL SYSTEM - A snow removal system wherein snow removers located in remote locations can be monitored and controlled at a computing device. Data collected by sensors on the snow removal unit or data collected from a secondary source can be used to control the operation of the snow removers. In one embodiment, data regarding whether it is snowing at a particular location can be collected by moister sensors on the snow removal device and verified by on-line contemporaneous weather reports corresponding to the same location.||10-07-2010|
|20090277999||RAILWAY TRACK SWITCH - The present disclosure relates to a railroad switch point having fixed rails and switching rails. The switch point includes a first railroad tie having a top side. The switch point also includes a rod positioned at the top side of the first railroad tie. The rod is coupled to the switching rails and is also coupled to a switch actuator. A first rail support is secured to the top side of the first railroad tie for supporting the fixed rails and the switching rails above the rod.||11-12-2009|
