NTSB Recommends Metro-North Install Cameras

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) today issued a series of safety recommendations to the Metro-North Railroad calling for the use of inward and outward facing audio and image recorders and the installation of approach permanent speed restrictions signs along the right-of-ways.

These safety recommendations were developed from information learned during the ongoing investigation into the Dec. 1 derailment of a Metro-North passenger train in Bronx, N.Y.

In that crash, the southbound train, consisting of seven passenger cars and one locomotive, derailed on the Metro-North Hudson Line near Spuyten Duyvil Station, killing four and injuring dozens of others.

“The images and audio captured by recorders can be invaluable to our investigators,” said NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman. “Understanding what is happening inside the cab just prior to a crash can provide crucial information about how to prevent future accidents.”
