FRA PTC Final Rule to OMB

According to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) web site, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has submitted their final rule for their amendments to the Positive Train Control (PTC) regulations. The FRA is moving fairly quickly with this rule as the comment period on the NPRM closed in late October of last year.

Readers will remember that I expressed some concerns regarding the amendments relating to the specific wording of the revisions to the regulations governing the removal of track from the PTC regulations based upon the cessation or expected cessation of TIH traffic on a particular line prior to January 1st, 2016. It will be interesting to see if that wording gets changed.
