Facility

TTCI manages the Federal Railroad Administration's (FRA) Transportation Technology Center (TTC), located just 21 miles northeast of Pueblo, Colorado. TTC is operated under a care, custody, and control contract with the FRA. This 52-square mile, secure and remote site operates with a vast array of specialized laboratories and track. TTC enables isolated testing for all categories of freight and passenger rolling stock, vehicle and track components, and safety devices.


There are 48 miles of railroad track available for testing locomotives, vehicles, track components, and signaling devices at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC), Pueblo, Colorado. Specialized tracks are used to evaluate vehicle stability, safety, endurance, reliability, and ride comfort. Using TTC's tracks eliminates the interferences, delays, and safety issues encountered on an operating rail system.
