July 28, 2022: (NPRM) Train Crew Size Safety Requirements

FRA is proposing a new rule that would set a minimum size requirement for train crews depending on the type of operation. Under the proposed rule, a minimum of two crewmembers would be required on all trains except those that don’t pose significant safety risks to railroad employees.
The proposal includes a special approval procedure that would allow railroads to petition FRA for approval to initiate a new train operation with fewer than two crewmembers. Interested parties may submit comments on the proposed rule until September 26, 2022.
