This is a status report on the development of a locomotive cab design predicated on human and other engineering disciplines which can lead to specifications for a cab that is in concert with operational and safety considerations. The development, sponsored by Transportation Systems Center, is based on a list of functional requirements derived from locomotive systems management tasks and train handling techniques. A mock up and a mobile idler car with the cab for controlling trailing locomotive units are also described.
