Through the use of engineering principles and common sense, TTCI engineers are known worldwide for solving railway and transit problems in many areas. TTCI engineers have many years of test design and experience, including on-track and laboratory testing of freight and passenger vehicles and components, as well as over-the-road and other off-site tests to evaluate vehicles and components.

Using state-of-the-art data analysis tools, TTCI engineers can analyze and solve problems for clients, as well as develop well-founded computer models that predict vehicle and component responses.

TTCI engineers continually upgrade their professional skills through specialized training and formal education — many have Master and Doctorate degrees and are licensed professional engineers. TTCI engineers have authored thousands of technical papers and regularly attend railway conferences, nationally and internationally. Many have received ‘best paper’ recognition.

All research and testing by TTCI engineers through the Association of American Railroads Strategic Research Initiatives Program is documented and distributed to all AAR’s member railroads. Proprietary testing is also carried out and is kept confidential.


TTCI engineers are regular contributors to trade magazines, including Railway Age, Railway Track and Structures, Progressive Rail, IRJ as well as other distinguished organizations:

  • International Heavy Haul Conference
  • World Congress Railway Research
  • International Wheel Set Congress
