FINAL Deep Dive Report (S10-140310-003)[1] - Federal Railroad ...

On May 17, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, an accident occurred on Metro-North’s New Haven Line, when an eastbound Metro-North train of 8 cars, traveling 74 mph, derailed and came to rest on an adjacent track. Approximately 20 seconds later, a westbound Metro-North train on that adjacent track struck the derailed train. As a result of the accident, more than 50 people, some seriously injured, were hospitalized, rail operations were suspended, and millions in property damage occurred. • On May 28, 2013, a second accident occurred when a Metro-North train in West Haven, Connecticut, that was traveling 70 mph, struck and killed a Metro-North maintenance-ofway (MOW) employee who was part of a roadway work group performing railroad maintenance on a construction project. • On July 18, 2013, a third accident occurred when a CSX Transportation freight train derailed while traveling over Metro-North’s system. No one was injured, but property damage was significant. • On December 1, 2013, the fourth accident occurred when a Metro-North train of 7 cars traveling south from Poughkeepsie, New York, to Grand Central Terminal in New York City, derailed as it approached the Spuyten Duyvil Station. All cars derailed and the front cab came to rest close to the Harlem River. Four passengers were killed, and more than 70 were injured. Rail operations were suspended, and millions of dollars in property damage alone was sustained. On December 3, 2013, 2 days after the fourth and most serious of these accidents, FRA sent a letter to MTA expressing support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive that MTA hold a safety stand-down, and directing Metro-North to implement a Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) (Appendix 2). Additionally, FRA issued Emergency Order 29 and Safety Advisory 2013-08. • Emergency Order 29, issued on December 6, 2013, required Metro-North to take immediate action to prevent excessive train speeds by identifying and prioritizing highrisk areas, modifying its existing signal system to ensure speed limits are obeyed, and 1 requiring a higher level of engagement and communication among operating crewmembers in areas in which major speed restrictions are in place. • Safety Advisory 2013-08, issued on December 10, 2013, urged railroads to provide additional training, increase the frequency of operational testing, and reinforced the importance of communication between crew members. The purpose was to ensure that all railroads adhere to Federal regulations and railroad operating rules regarding maximum authorized train speed limits. On December 16, 2013, FRA launched Operation Deep Dive, an assessment of Metro-North’s operations and safety compliance. More than 60 technical and human factor experts comprising 14 teams, conducted a 60-day comprehensive safety assessment of Metro-North. With assistance from the Federal Transit Administration, these experts reviewed and assessed Metro-North’s safety-related processes and procedures, its compliance with safety regulations and requirements, and its overall safety culture. In assessing Metro-North, the Deep Dive team evaluated:...

Accident No.: DCA14MR002 Accident Type: Railroad Train ...

course of the investigation. On December 1, 2013, about 0719 eastern standard time, southbound Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) passenger train number 8808 derailed at milepost 11.35 on track number 2 of the Metro-North Hudson Line in The Bronx, New York. Train movements on this line are governed by a traffic control system. The train originated in Poughkeepsie, New York with a destination of Grand Central Station in New York City. It consisted of seven passenger cars and one locomotive at the rear pushing the train. As a result of the derailment, 4 passengers died and 59 persons were transported to local hospitals for injuries. Metro-North estimated there were about 115 passengers on the train at the time of the derailment. Damage was estimated by Metro-North to be in excess of $9 million. The weather at the time of the accident was reported as 39° F with cloudy skies. Figure: Aerial view of accident scene National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators have completed the on-scene work in The Bronx. The investigation will continue at the NTSB headquarters in Washington, D.C. Preliminary results of the investigation include: The derailment occurred in a 6 degree left hand curve where speed was limited to 30 mph. Estimated train speed at the time of the derailment was at 82 mph. Detailed inspection and testing of the signal system, train brakes, and other mechanical equipment did not identify any anomalies. An inspection of the track in the derailment area did not identify any pre-accident anomalies. All cars on the train and the locomotive derailed. Between December 1 and 11, 2013, investigators completed interviews of train crews and first responders. Interview transcripts will be included in the public docket upon release. Locomotive event recorders were sent to the NTSB laboratory in Washington, D.C. for further analysis. The parties to the investigation include the Federal Railroad Administration, Metro-North Railroad, New York Public Transportation Safety Board, Teamsters Local 808, New York Police Department, New York Fire Department, and Bombardier Transportation. The Association of Commuter Rail Employees (ACRE) was initially designated as a party. However, because one of ACRE’s senior officials made unauthorized comments on the investigation to the media, ACRE was removed as a party on December 3, 2013.
