United States v. Erie R. Co., 237 U.S. 402 (1915)

United States v. Erie Railroad Company

No. 580

Argued December 18, 1915

Decided May 3, 1915

237 U.S. 402


Railroad yards belonging to the same railroad but several miles apart, such as those of the Erie Railroad at Jersey City, Weehawken, and Bergen, although important accessories of the same terminal, are not actually one yard, and trains moving between them are not engaged merely in switching operations, but are engaged in transportation within the purview of the air brake provisions of the Safety Appliance Act.

212 F.8d 3, reversed.

The facts, which involve the construction and application of the Safety Appliance Acts, are stated in the opinion.
