Railroad Safety Inspections - Safety Inspection
This State program is a vital supplement to the national program established by the Federal Railroad Administration. The program monitors the safety practices of each railroad company operating in Maryland by conducting inspections of railroad track, operating practices and motive power and equipment. State inspectors are certified by the Federal Railroad Administration.
This program also monitors and assists certain railroad operations that are not under federal jurisdiction. State inspectors work to promote understanding of railroad standards in private industry, and with tourist and museum railroad operators who carry passengers but are not covered under federal railroad regulations.
