New York Railroads (New York)

Last Updated: May 30, 2022, 12:45 pm

Due to operational changes, mergers and general changes, some railroad radio channels may be reused by the same or adjacent railroads. However, if using RadioReference aware scanners or software, you can reduce seeing or duplicating this information by scanning just the subdivisions or locations that you are interested in. 

Passenger operations can be heard on the respective railroad they are operating on unless passenger stations have specific radio assignments. 

Short alpha names are comprised of the railroads AAR reporting mark, AAR channel number and subdivision or major use function. The description field will contain actual use or location information to provide the best possible information for various scanners, users and readability. 

Traveling system gangs (Maintenance of Way) will use the area road channel for track authority and for the foreman to grant trains through the work limits. These gangs will typically use their own channels - and such channels should not be submitted to the database as they are only temporary for the area. Signal, communications and other engineering groups will typically only be on the road channel, but may use any other as needs warrant. 

Where a railroad or a subdivision lists both a "Dispatcher" and "Road" channel, both should be monitored. Most defect detectors and operations will occur on the road channel 

In former Conrail areas, the old common Conrail channels may be reused by both CSXT and NS. Conrail identified these as: 

Channel 1 - AAR 046 - 160.800
Channel 2 - AAR 064 - 161.070
Channel 3 - AAR 050 - 160.860
Channel 4 - AAR 058 - 160.980
