Amtrak RWP ALERT:

ESB FY14-31 - Acela 160 mph Qual Test.jpg (397044 bytes)

Trains are scheduled to test at 160 mph on the dates listed on the Safety Bulletin. You MUST SET UP RWP PROTECTION FOR SPEEDS AT 160 mph.

It's a huge difference form 135 mph to 160. If you are required to work on the tracks during the testing make sure you have the additional watchmen required for 160 mph so you will be in the clear 15 seconds before the train reaches your work area. Look on the back of your RWP card so you know how many cat poles away the train should be for you to be in the clear at least 15 seconds. And don't be a fool, give yourselves much more time. I've seen the trains do 160 mph and it is fast! It is on you before you know it
