Ditch lights not flashing
Author: u34ch

On 2/11/21 posted at 10:09 video shows a train sounding its horn, but the ditch lights did not blink. Is this a violation?

Not all ditch lights flash. Not required in the US or Canada. It's a railroad company option.

Can't say I've ever seen flashing ditch lights on a Canadian train.  Probably happens some places but
I don't think it's common...

VIA P42DC's were delivered with flashing ditch lights but that was changed in very short order.
