(NEW YORK) -- Federal transportation officials issued an emergency order Friday to the New York commuter rail line, Metro North, that suffered a deadly derailment last week.
After investigators determined the Metro North commuter train rounded a 30-mile-per-hour curve at 82 miles-per-hour, the Federal Railroad Administration instructed the MTA to increase staffing in locomotives and modify signals to make sure operators obey speed limits.
Under the order, two qualified railroad employees are required to operate trains where major speed restrictions are in place until the signal system is updated.
The MTA says it will comply with the rules.
