  • Published by Ozgur Tore

amtrak trainAfter deadly Philadelphia crash, Amtrak plans to install video cameras in the cabs of trains running along routes in the northeast of the country in a bid to improve safety and help investigators in the event of a future incident.

"Inward-facing video cameras will help improve safety and serve as a valuable investigative tool," Amtrak Chief Executive Joe Boardman said in a statement.

The cameras will be installed in 70 locomotives that power trains on the Washington-to-Boston northeast corridor, as well as service between New York, Philadelphia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Amtrak is still looking into ways to install cameras in the high-speed locomotives that power its Acela express line through the region and on diesel-powered locomotives.
