Freight railroads ask courts to throw out new rule requiring two-person crews on trains

  • Four railroads are challenging a new rule requiring two-person train crews, arguing that it lacks safety data and hinders their competitiveness.
  • The rule has been opposed by the rail industry, unions, and major freight railroads, who believe two-person crews are unnecessary due to automatic braking systems.
  • The new rule, set to take effect in June, has faced legal challenges and exceptions allowing short line railroads to operate with one-person crews under certain conditions.
