This report of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) on its safety assessment of the MetroNorth Commuter Railroad (Metro-North), called Operation Deep Dive, is provided to Congress pursuant to report language in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Omnibus Appropriations Act. Metro-North is the second largest commuter railroad in the Nation, serving New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey, with an annual ridership of almost 83 million people. MetroNorth is a subsidiary agency of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), a New York State Authority. In 2013, four high-profile accidents occurred on Metro-North (Appendix 1). • 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.

It was a grey Saturday morning in December when we got the knock on the door we’d been dreading. It was the mail carrier delivering a registered letter from our landlord.
Since he’s a mechanical engineer by training and practice, it begs the question: “How did Tom Lewman become a successful hydroponics grower?” Increasingly discontent with the high levels of chemical pesticides contained in the foods he consumed during business travel,Tom, together with his wife Nancy, planned a healthy solution.Their original intent was to have a small greenhouse in which to grow food for the family, though it soon became evident they were on to something much bigger. From the outside, Bux Mont Hydroponics in Perkasie, Pennsylvania (located near the historic Valley Forge), doesn’t look like a large operation, but looks can be deceiving. Consisting of a 6,000 square feet greenhouse, Bux Mont Hydroponics supplies tomatoes, basil, and arugula to seven stores out of a 20-store supermarket chain, with plans to supply all the stores in the chain with Bux Mont produce.Tom is currently considering other crops that include bell peppers, cilantro, dill and lettuce. Demand for Bux Mont fresh produce is so high that Tom is in the middle of building additional bays on his 11-acre property “I have enough supermarkets around me in a 15-mile radius to keep me busy,” said Tom. “Everything is local, delivered as fresh as it can be, and only handled by me.” Although much of the space in Tom’s hoop houses is occupied by rows of tomato vines, visitors will notice sections devoted to other plants, including basil. “There are so many hydroponic tomatoes coming in from places like Canada that prices here are being driven down,” said Tom. “I knew I had to do something different in order to succeed, and that is why I decided to grow basil as a cash crop.”
