Cameras on WOH lines

Postby TDowling » Fri Aug 10, 2018 8:48 pm

Metro North has decided to equip its comet fleet for Port Jervis and Pascack Valley line service with non-audio cameras: while we have yet to see all of the 65 cars installed with them, Im wondering if this "test run" will spur the agency to install surveillance in trains on both sides of the river?

They've already got cameras on the M8s for sure (I rode one last weekend with a cam) and today I will ride an M7 and Shoreliner on my way to the Yankee game today, so I'll let you know if I see cameras on the other trains I rode.

M7s do have cameras. Not sure if they are all equipped with them.

Most (if not all) M7's have them. Most M3's and many cab cars and Genny loco's

not sure what conversation is about , all US commuter and passenger railroads are mandated by Congress to install both out facing and in facing camera's . the railroads since hard disks have huge capacities added in facing camera's in passenger compartments.
the M-8's for example have wiring and recording capacity of 9 channels per car.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???
