NTSB Safety Recommendations R-09-1 through -3


The National Transportation Safety Board makes the following

recommendations to the Federal Railroad Administration:

Establish uniform signal aspects that railroads must use to

authorize a train to enter an occupied block, and prohibit

the use of these aspects for any other signal indication.


Study the different signal systems for trains, identify ways

to communicate more uniformly the meaning of signal aspects

across all railroad territories, and require the railroads

to implement as many uniform signal meanings as possible.


Require that emergency exits on new and remanufactured

locomotive cabs provide for rapid egress by cab occupants

and rapid entry by emergency responders. (R-09-3)
