DDCT Task Demos

Railinc has developed a series of online training demos to help railroads, equipment owners, repair shops and pre-trip, scrap and storage locations learn how to use the Damaged and Defective Car Tracking (DDCT) system. The DDCT system affects the reporting, documentation and management of damaged and defective equipment under AAR rules 1, 95, 96, 107 and 108.
