The Attention Game

You’re in the driver’s seat, where an operator must pay attention to, and react to, numerous items in the cab and in the environment along the right of way.

Click any one of videos below to experience what it is like to be a locomotive engineer.

As you watch, think about all you see and hear. Outside the cab, is there traffic? What about signals and signs? Inside the cab, are there displays, controls, or radio chatter? What is important?

When the video is over, we'll ask how many items of interest you saw that required your attention.
