Engineers asked to sound horns on Memorial Day

The U.S. Department of Transportation is asking all BLE members to sound their locomotive horns at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day -- Monday, May 27.

The horn sounding is part of the "National Moment of Remembrance" to recognize the heroic men and women who died in service of our nation to preserve our freedom.

In addition, conductors are asked to make an announcement on passenger trains at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.
