This course teaches how to start, operate and properly shutdown a locomotive. We also include how to properly control in-train forces (buff and draft) and how to prevent a jackknife or string line derailment. The proper use of the air brake system, reading gauges, and the use of the throttle are thoroughly described. How to start and stop on ascending and descending grades? It’s in there. Even if your company uses a Shuttle Wagon, Rail King or Track Mobile, many of the same principles and procedures apply.

This course was developed for the person who does not necessarily work with rail equipment but occasionally has to place themselves near tracks or equipment. If you have to cross tracks to get from one place in the plant to another, a maintenance worker, a truck driver, or an office worker who may need to walk close to tracks or equipment occasionally, this course will help keep you safe.

“I was so impressed with the Rail Safe’s online training that I have decided to make the course mandatory before a new hire can perform any work in our railyards. It is a very well written course and I can assure you will not be disappointed.
