They can be heard on the VHF railroad band when communicating with trains / work crews, maybe on the local law enforcement systems.

Mostly, they use cell phones anymore.

I think 161.205 is assigned for use by railroad police. I believe it's simplex, not repeated, so you'll have to be close by to hear it, *IF* it's used in your area at all. Otherwise, search the railroad band, 160.215-161.565.

Railroad Police in SoCal rarely use radios anymore, they use Nextel. Once in a while you will hear them on the CHP UHF system 460.375/460.450 when they need help. For actual rail freqs there are too many to list here, literally. Its best to use the service scan feature on your radio.

I hear Amtrak Police nearly every night when the Coast Starlight arrives at LAUPT from Seattle. They will also do a yard check afterward. 161.0500

Union Pacific uses CHP 460.3750 to run names from time to time. BNSF is Nextel.




When I took this photo at Main Street in Downtown LA, UPPD still used 161.205
