The purpose of the investigation was to review design of locomotive cabs from the human factors point of view. The following areas of human factors engineering are discussed: construction of cab interiors; design of controls and displays; atmospheric conditions in the cab; noise and vibration; seat design; physiology and vigilance of train driving. Discussion of each subject is divided into three sections: survey of relevant literature, conditions on domestic locomotives, and recommendations to improve present models and future design.
