Rail Signaling Systems - Recent Price Trend

From 2015 to 2018, prices for railroad signaling systems have been rising slowly at an estimated annualized rate of 0.4%. Prices are driven by a combination of input costs and demand drivers, the latter of which have been growing during the past three years. When there is an increase in costs, such as the price of communications equipment, suppliers pass the added expense on to buyers in.

Rail Signaling Systems - Total Cost of Ownership

Railroad signaling systems require periodic inspection and maintenance in addition to the costs of the personnel required to operate the system. However, due to the high initial costs of a railroad signaling system, the total cost of ownership hovers around 40.0% of the original purchase price and is therefore considered low. Besides the monetary costs, there are considerable time and effort.
