Glines Dies; 40 Years in Transit Signaling

Robert H. Glines, 70, a 40-year employee of General Railway Signal Company (now part of Alstom), died March 26 in Penn Yan, NY.

Following service in the U.S. Navy, Glines joined General Railway Signal in November 1962 as a commercial engineer and retired early in December of 2003. He provided engineering, sales, and business development services for the firm and its subsequent owners, SASIB Signaling and Alstom Signaling.

Glines also held senior-level positions for such companies as Parsons Brinckerhoff and Gannett Fleming, and ended his working career as an advisor on the board of directors of ETA Transit Systems. His projects—spanning North America, Western Europe, and Japan—involved bus information systems, train control, microwave systems, public safety communications, high-speed rail, driverless transit, and Communications Based Train Control.

Glines was a member of the APTA Business Member Board of Governors for 22 years and also served on the APTA Board of Directors. He was vice chairman for passenger transportation with the Railway Progress Institute for 13 years and was a charter member of the High Speed Rail Association.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Keuka Comfort Care Home, P.O. Box 107, Penn Yan, NY 14527.
