CBS News affiliate interviews TCU’s Kevin Loftin on PSR, train safety

On Tuesday, Salt Lake City’s CBS News local affiliate (KUTV) published an investigative news piece on Union Pacific’s Precision Scheduled Railroading (PSR) model and its impact on safety, including the derailment of several trains in western states. 

TCU Carmen National Representative Kevin Loftin was interviewed throughout the program, and highlighted the importance of having adequate manpower to properly inspect and maintain locomotives and cars coming through the yards.
