This amendment provides additional guidance, clarifying amendments and expanded relief from the EO. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Douglas H. Taylor, Staff Director, Operating Practices Division, Office of Safety Assurance and Compliance, FRA, 1120 Vermont Avenue, NW., RRS–11, Mail Stop 25, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone 202–493–6255); or Alan H. Nagler, Senior Trail Attorney, Office of Chief Counsel, FRA, 1120 Vermont Avenue, NW., RCC–11, Mail Stop 10, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone 202– 493–6038). Background EO 24 was issued on October 19, 2005, published in the Federal Register on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61496) and required that railroads modify their operating rules and take certain other actions necessary to ensure that railroad employees who dispatch trains in nonsignaled territory or who operate handoperated main track switches (switches) in non-signaled territory, ensure the switches are restored to their proper (normal) position after use. EO 24 required that railroads ‘‘immediately initiate steps to implement this EO * * * [and] complete implementation no later than November 22, 2005.’’ 70 FR 61496, 61500. As the resulted community began implementation, practical concerns were raised with FRA regarding some aspects of the EO. In response to these informal comments, FRA has decided to provide the railroads and employees additional flexibility in complying with the EO. Because FRA is granting additional flexibility to the railroads and the employees, the November 22, 2005 effective date of the EO is not changing. On November 4, 2005, FRA posted on its Web site at http://www.fra.dot.gov/ an additional document, in a question and answer format, that provided timely guidance to the informal comments offered by the regulated community.
