Thanks for the pictures. This will be my first visit to Brazil after spending the last year working on CBTC in China.

Wow, very exciting! You are from Union Switch & Signal? Or you are from Alstom Transportation? Can you give some detail about the modernisation of communication on lines 7, 9 and 12? Thank you in advance!

Hey, thanks for the pictures of Pinheiros. I literally am finishing up the DCS test plan today. It is good to see where to position a tester for the wireless tests.

Send me a PM and we can email.

7 9 and 12 are not traditional CBTC systems in that they do not require constant train/wayside communication throughout the track. CBTC uses data packets to track location of trains and then to have a central authority/server make decisions on scheduling and switching tracks. On Line 9 we will have the train coming into the station to receive directions for the next section of track to the next station but there will be no speed or stop decisions made on the fly. A train gets its information and then waits to get its next directions at the next stop.

Like I said, send me a PM and we can email.

James

Just realized those pics were for the PIN line 4 stop. I didn't see if there were PIN Line 9 photos on the website. I think it is older so maybe not.

Has the recent rainy weather affected CPTM service? Plan on traveling to Sao Paulo next week, but may need to change my plans til later in February; due to the rains. Will the bad weather continue for a while longer? Please send me an email.

Obrigado.

Is better to go in late February, because in January the rainy period is very intense. In February it's very intense too, but far less than January.
