The railroads of North America are assigned a group of 97 frequencies in the VHF band. These frequencies are in the range of 160.110 megahertz to 161.565 megahertz, in 15 kilohertz increments.

Outside the VHF band, the railroads of North America use the frequency 457.9375 megahertz for transmissions from a train's end-of-train (EOT) device to the train's lead locomotive.

Various Railroad Frequencies


Outside the VHF band, the railroads of North America use the frequency 457.9375 megahertz for transmissions from a train's end-of-train (EOT) device to the train's lead locomotive.

Most U. S. end-of-train devices transmit only. However, in Canada, the frequency 452.9375 megahertz is used to transmit from a train's lead locomotive to the end-of-train device. Use of two-way end-of-train devices is gaining popularity in the United States. Before the universal adoption of these EOT frequencies by the AAR, Norfolk Southern adopted its own EOT devices, which transmit on the frequency 161.115 megahertz
