Metra’s commitment to safety and sustainability includes operating special Bike Cars that can carry up to 16 bicycles. They’re easily identifiable by their blue and grey paint scheme, as well as a large white bicycle decal adjacent to the exterior doors.

Railhead Corp., manufacturer of safety lighting, tools, mobile video surveillance and locomotive data recorders has teamed up with Volant Unmanned Aerial Solutions (UAS) to bring the Lockheed Martin-made Digital Indago™ LE vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone to the rail industry.
Railhead Corporation has announced that New Mexico Railrunner will be enhancing its current Locomotive Digital Video Recorder (LDVR) systems. NMRR is expanding its current LDVR platform from 4 to 8 channels and adding Railhead’s proprietary twin view camera. The 8 channel LDVR will enable NMRR to add cameras as needed to coincide with the upcoming inward facing camera mandate while the twin view camera will provide two field of views (narrow and wide) to assist in incident investigations. NMRR found the twin camera (TC-690) more accurately replicates the engineer’s point of view (POV), than a single fixed lens camera. The narrow provides a more focal POV, great for signal capturing, while the wide view is great for capturing last second crossing incidents or track side views.
