Metro-North Railroad PL Tones
I was wondering I was taking a look at the railroad listing in the New York database and noticed that there are PL tones of 123.0 for all of the channels, I thought just the following frequencies were the only ones that used a PL tone.
Channel 4 (A) – 160.410* (AAR Channel 20)
Harlem/Hudson MOW, 3rd Rail Dept, Structures Dept.
Channel 5 – 161.160* (AAR Channel 70)
New Haven Line MOW/ Power Dept, GCT Station Master’s Office, Signal Control Desk.
MTA PD Channel 1 (Disp) – 161.220* (AAR Channel 74)
MTA PD Channel 2 (Car/ Car) – 160.560* (AAR Channel 30)
Here is what the database has;
