FRA Warns NS About Conductor Training

The Federal Railroad Administration has warned Norfolk Southern about shortcomings in the railroad’s conductor-certification program.

A story posted on the website of Trains magazine said the warning came in a letter from FRA Deputy Administrator Amit Bose.

The letter cited a series of incidents in which employees who were certified conductors with less than a year of service were struck by moving railroad equipment and suffered serious injuries.

The FRA called on NS to take action to avoid future incidents as well as reviewing its conductor training practices with an eye toward correcting training deficiencies.
