I’m sure by now you all have heard that the FRA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). Now is the time for the public to weigh in on this proposed regulation. This organization has made it easy for members to do so. On the BLET’s webpage there is now a link for members to submit their comments regarding this regulation. you can access that link here.
There is no doubt that every member has had experiences where disaster was prevented by having another person in the cab of the locomotive. We ask our membership to share their experiences with the FRA.
