This report presents a synopsis of the background analyses leading to the design of a line haul locomotive crew compartment. The design was incorporated into a full scale mockup which was evaluated by a nationwide representation of locomotive engineers. The report includes an analysis of these evaluations and identifies those areas of the original design that are recommended for design refinement. Specifications are included for the design being recommended as a nationally acceptable crew station for line haul freight locomotives. The reports in this series bear the general title: Locomotive Cab Design Development.
