Railroads are vitally concerned with interconnection of their communications facilities with those of the public telephone network. At present, the Federal Communications Commission is looking into the matter. Generally, the telephone companies desire to install their own protective devices at the interface of customer-owned facilities and those of the phone companies. Railroads which have the expertise and ability to interconnect their own communications networks without harm to the public systems do not want to have this additional expense. Working with the AAR Communication & Signal Section, railroads can report on their experiences and problems in the interconnection field.
