NORAC Rules – Same as, NJT, MN, SEPTA, AMT, et al. (FRA has to approve rules)
ATC/CSS Signal System - Same as, NJT, MN, SEPTA, AMT, et al. (FRA controls specifications)
PTC Overlay Provision – Capable future upgraded same as, NJT, MN, SEPTA, AMT, et al.
But not under FRA jurisdiction ort control, nor STB for the moment.
The word is to watch out for the Chinese, the 400-500 meter, 20,000 plus container vessels cannot dock and transfer in any US port at present. They need 50-60 deep water at full load, usually go broadside to bulkhead, have limited current / wind compensation, thus SI deep water, and possibly BKLYN deep water are critical for these ships. The Chinese (they already have a dozen of these size ships, many more coming) are pushing the RPC plan, possibly fully funding such, thus national rail interconnection points, one to west via Port Ivory, and one to the north via the Hellgate.
Baltimore, Boston are “out”, Newport News is “in”, as is one port in Florida, as is Long Beach in California for these ships.
