To: Sarah E. Feinberg, Administrator Federal Railroad Administration 1200 New Jersey (how about that?!) SE Washington, DC 20590
Please alter 49 CFR 236.1019 (b) (1), Main Line Track Exception, Passenger Terminal Exception, as follows:
(1) The maximum authorized speed for all movement is not greater than 10 mph and that maximum is automatically enforced by train control equipment installed on the locomotive
add the following new paragraph:
(4) Where train speeds are not automatically enforced to no more than 10 mph, the onboard PTC equipment must be capable of enforcing a positive stop at all signals, and at every location, capable of displaying 'stop,' or requiring a complete stop.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
