Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to present The TSB is publishing selected fields from its Rail Occurrence Database System (RODS) so that this information can be used by industry and the public in order to advance transportation safety. The rail data file allows you to view accidents and incidents that have been reported to the TSB since 1 January 2004. The data provided in the rail data file is described in the accompanying data dictionary. TSB data is collected according to the mandatory occurrence reporting requirements described in the TSB Regulations. On 1 July 2014, the TSB issued new regulations that changed some reporting requirements. Data prior to this date were collected under the reporting requirements described in the TSB Regulations in effect at that time. This rail data file will normally be generated on the 15th of each month. Basic information about each new occurrence in the previous month is available by the date of publication. Further factual information is added when available. As this data is pulled from a live database that captures the results of ongoing investigations, historical data is subject to change, with the oldest data being the most stable. Further, as many occurrences are not investigated formally, information recorded on some occurrences may not have been verified. The scope of what is published will evolve as the TSB gains more experience in publishing this type of data. 2015-07-10 2017-06-20 Transportation Safety Board of Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca TransportRailStatisticsAccidentIncidentCollisionDerailment Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to presentCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/Rail_Eng.csv Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to presentCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/Rail_Fra.csv Data DictionaryCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.csv Data DictionaryCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.csv Data DictionaryHTML http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.asp Data DictionaryHTML http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.asp
