BNSF MRAS Frequencies

These are the phone patch frequencies in use on the BNSF Railway.  This is still in use from the Burlington Northern Railroad.  It is called MRAS or Mobile Radio Access System.  The system is used by Maintenance of Way personnel to obtain main track authority and by train crews to contact dispatchers, supervisors, and others if needed.  The former ATSF also had a system which is still in use.  It is called the PBX System.
