European Rail Traffic Management System or ERTMS, basically is a system of signaling that improves safety and efficiency in the management of a rail network, the most advanced and standardized so far.

Firstly remember that due to the high speeds this trains achieve, there is no visual signaling system that a human is capable of realize at time, so this systems are based on a series of actuators, sensors, etc, over the whole railway that emit signals into the cabin and are displayed on screens and/or through audible methods, well in advance and in some cases taking decisions without human intervention.

Good idea. I'd like to know the principal train solutions the bidders can offer and its characteristics.

The Siemens Velaro in some configurations (E AVE class for example) can achieve a top speed of 403 kilometers per hour, and a service speed of 301 kilometers per hour.
















Alstom is very interested in this project. Its flag train is the AGV with speeds from 200 to 360 km/h

The HSR is not going to share railways with freight services; except by the suburban railway, the rest of the HSR will be 100% new track, mostly running paralel to the freight rail and only using the railway rights for another double track exclusively for the HSR in order to have the less environmental impact.
No single concessionaire of freight services is being affected.

the latest potential project depends on the USA not of Mexico.

Plans for a high speed rail link from Monterrey, Mexico, to San Antonio, Texas



Quote:
Mexican officials have already secured the rights of way for the rail line from Monterrey to the U.S. border and say that this section of the line, likely to cost around 1.5 billion dollars, could be up and running as early as 2018. The U.S. section, from the border northwards, is unlikely to be completed before 2022 at the earliest, though a $5.6 million study of potential high-speed rail lines stretching from Laredo to Oklahoma City is already underway.

The first high speed rail links in North America are likely to be in Mexico, where planning is well advanced and the first construction contracts are being awarded for building high speed links from Mexico City to Toluca and Querétaro. Plans for a high speed train in the Yucatán Peninsula have also been announced.

Quote:
The Mexican company of solutions for the development of infrastructure, PCZ Railway Solutions, closed a commercial investment agreement with Italian and Dutch manufacturers (of which the name is unknown) in order to participate in tenders for the construction and development of the rail projects in Mexico.

Carlos Orozco, CEO of the firm, said the consortium has a stock list up to 500 million dollars (mdd) to start the first 60 km of any of the the projects, and can manage the remaining finance to develop holistically civil works and equipment.
Quote:
Another mexican company raised his hand to participate in the tenders announced, IAMSA, transport group which last year recorded a profit of close to 600 millions.

Jorge Cervantes, director of management of this corporation, said the company is seeking placement of stock certificates (debt issuance) for 3,500 millions to prepare and compete in contests to be announced.
Quote:
Maximiliano Zurita, CEO in Mexico by the Spanish company CAF reported that this Iberian company aims to be a candidate in tenders because their corebusiness is precisely the passenger train at any range (trams, light, metros, suburban, regional, etc.). Currently, this company is the concessionaire of the single line commuter rail service running from Buenavista to Cuautitlan, in the Valley of Mexico.
Quote:
The canadian company Bombardier said it is the only competitor in the field that can make trains from design to commissioning, and the engine that drives its bet is based on a labor force of 20,000 workers in the country and the ability to produce a locomotive a day for his client Railen Progress at its main plant in Ciudad Sahagun, in the Mexican state of Hidalgo.

If he wins the tender, Bombardier plans to promote a cluster of trains in Hidalgo replicating the success in the aviation industry in Querétaro; therefore calls on the authorities to take into account local content rules that encourage investment in Mexico, said Jean-FrancoisCloutier, VP Operations Business Unit in Mexico from Bombardier Transportation North America.

So do we know who's bidding for the project? Is it just going be Europeans, or will we see East Asian companies as well? Shinkansen might be too expensive, but Korean or Chinese trains could work. So exciting to see Mexico getting fast trains!

as far as we know, Mitsubishi and China North Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (CNR) made public their interest in participate, but I have not more information respect if they could form a consortium with mexican builders.

I believe is very exciting to see that finally there will be HSR in North America! either be Mexico or the USA.

To my knowledge Mitsubishi is not in the Train business, it's either Hitachi, Kawasaki and/or Nihon Sharyo.
I would suggest to adopt the Shinkansen loading gauge for possible connection to the Texas HSR project in the future. That way you'll have a connection all the way to Dallas.

The bidding is open.

I read that there's 5 to 6 companies already interested. But they will wait for all proposals.

Congratulations

So: China (CNR), Korea (Hyundai Rotem), Japan (Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Kawasaki, etc), Germany (Siemens), America (?), Canada (Bombardier), so far.

I bet Spain (CAF) and France (Alstom) will bid too.
