The Early Warning System identifies mechanical problems on rail equipment which could impede the safe movement or handling of the equipment. It allows authorized users a graphical interface to create Early Warning and Maintenance Advisory notices, issue supplements to notices, assign equipment to notices, report inspections and repairs for equipment, and perform queries of notices and equipment.

As a single source for accurate, up-to-date notice data, the Early Warning System enables efficient and reliable inspection and repair reporting. Access the Early Warning System via TRAIN II and web services.
