We dream it - now build it

The public has learned much about Positive Train Control in the past two days.
I just learned this.
"Due to PTC's complexity and the enormity of the implementation task," the an association statement said, "and the fact that much of the technology PTC requires simply did not exist when the PTC mandate was passed and has had to be developed from scratch, much work remains to be done. Despite railroads' best efforts, various technical and non-technical challenges make full development and deployment of PTC by 2015 impossible."
Someone had an idea.
How to implement it?
Don't ask the idea people.
They want it.
Now make it happen.
