DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC22 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Passenger Train Emergency Systems; Doors, Emergency Lighting, Emergency Signage and Markings for Egress and Access, and Low-Location Emergency Exit Path Marking; Miscellaneous Amendments 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the passenger equipment safety standards to enhance standards for passenger train emergency systems and would clarify the passenger train emergency preparedness standards. Specifically, FRA would incorporate by reference three APTA emergency system standards: "Standard for Emergency Lighting System Design for Passenger Cars," "Standard for Emergency Signage for Egress/Access of Passenger Rail Equipment," and "Standard for Low-Location Exit Path Marking." Miscellaneous amendments to FRA's existing regulations would include: (1) clarifying that new passenger cars must have at least two exterior side doors, one on each side; (2) requiring removable panels/windows in vestibule doors for new passenger cars; (3) consolidating various door requirements into one section for easier reference; and (4) revising part 239 to explicitly address train crew participation in debrief and critique sessions.
