The railroad industry is seeking a 5-year extension on the installation of a collision-avoidance system in the nation’s railroads. Following the 2008 Metrolink train crash that killed 25 and injured 135, Congress approved legislation mandating the installation of such a system by 2015. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) said an extension may give the industry additional time to lobby against the implementation of the system. The American Public Transportation Association, on the other hand, sees that the mandate pushes commuter railroads to pick between either meeting the deadline or completing maintenance projects. Metrolink has budgeted $210 million for the project.
