Rail Cars: Stow the Tiedown Assemblies!


Army rail car personnel,

Remember to do a little housekeeping on the platform area of rail cars. That means stowing all tiedown chain assemblies in the platform’s anchor channels, or moving them to the center before any vehicles drive on or off the rail car. Why? In their correct (stowed) place, tiedown assemblies won’t get run over and damaged from heavy equipment. Also, Soldiers won’t trip over the assemblies and fall off the rail car’s platform.
