Croce III, Deputy Chief Engineer C&S, Acting, 2995 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Amtrak seeks to remove all four derails, one for each track in each direction at the Pelham Bay movable bridge interlocking, located at milepost 15.5 on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, New York Division, Hutchinson River, Bronx, NY. Each of the interlocking home signals protecting these derails, and the associated movable bridge, are equipped with the Northeast Corridor 100Hz coded cab signal system with speed control (also known as Automatic Train Control (ATC)). The interlocking is also equipped with Advanced Civil Speed Enforcement System (ACSES). The derails have been rendered obsolete by PO 00000 Frm 00147 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ATC and ACSES technologies, which enforce slowing and stopping of trains prior to passing the interlocking home signals in stop position, rather than derail the train after it passes the stop signal. The reason for removal of the derails is to eliminate maintenance and operation of obsolete hardware no longer needed, and to reduce delays to trains caused by failures of the derails.
