Reporting Level Definitions
An Individual railroad represents only those records reported under the selected railroad’s own FRA reporting code without any grouping.
A System railroad represents a grouping defined by the FRA of records reported by a parent railroad along with the subsidiaries and affiliates owned by the parent.
For Class 1 railroads, the FRA uses Surface Transportation Board (STB) filings submitted by each railroad to define a system railroad. This filing contains a list of subsidiaries and affiliates that the parent railroad is claiming as part of the overall railroad.
For non-Class 1 system railroads, the parent-child structure is reviewed on a case-by-case basis (by the FRA Railroad Safety Information Management Division’s staff.) Every attempt is made to verify and integrate these railroads with those used by FRA Office of Chief Counsel.
A Consolidated railroad represents a grouping defined by a railroad and approved by the FRA allowed to submit reports to the FRA as a single railroad entity representing the group of railroads operating under a single ownership on contiguous track as allowed under CFR 49 Part 225.6.
