South Shore commuter trains are being upgraded.

A new safety system is being installed on the trains.

Officials say the system can stop a train if the engineer

makes a mistake.

For example....the engineer will be told if he's traveling too

fast....and if the train doesn't slow down.....the system will

take over.

Other improvements include upgrades in the dispatch center.

Every railroad is under a federal mandate to have the equipment installed.

Officials say the system should be in use by the end of the year.
