May 2016 F.R.A. Report to Congress on Industry Response to Safety Advisories FRA-2013-08 and FRA-2015-13
This is a PDF copy of the report that the Federal Railroad Administration was required to submit to Congress by section 11406 of the FAST Act. It evaluates every railroad’s compliance with FRA safety advisories relating to overspeed through curves and also gives a good summary of the FRA response to the fatal 2013 Metro North and Amtrak Philadelphia derailments. The report was submitted to Congress in May 2016 and does not cover any new service that began after that date.
