Quantum Engineering, Inc. pwalker on PRODPC60 with NOTICES (Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2006– 25794) Quantum Engineering, Inc. (Quantum) seeks a waiver of compliance with certain requirements of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 232, subpart E—End-of-Train Devices, published January 17, 2001. Specifically, 49 CFR 232.403(g)(2) states: ‘‘If power is supplied by one or more batteries, the operating life shall be a minimum of 36 hours at 0 °C.’’ Quantum requests a waiver to allow a minimum of 12 hours of battery reserve for the two batteries they propose using in their Model Q39 end-of-train devices. According to Quantum, the Q39 endof-train device will be powered by an air turbine-powered alternator (which has been in service for several years). Both the batteries and the alternator are continuously connected to provide electrical power to components of the device. The batteries are charged by the air-driven alternator during normal train operations and provide backup power when the alternator is not functioning (e.g., during switching operations when train line air pressure is cut out). Quantum provided test data indicating that the end-of-train device will operate for approximately 16 hours with two new self-contained lead acid batteries at 0 °C after loss of train line air.

The South Carolina Railroad Museum, Inc. [Docket Number FRA–2006–25452] The South Carolina Railroad Museum, Inc. (SCMZ) seeks a permanent waiver of compliance from Control of Alcohol and Drug Use, 49 CFR Part 219 Subparts D through J, which require a railroad to conduct reasonable suspicion alcohol and/or drug testing, pre-employment drug testing, random alcohol and drug testing, and to have voluntary referral and co-worker report policies, and which also specify drug and alcohol testing procedures and recordkeeping requirements. The railroad is a nonprofit railroad museum located near Winnsboro, South Carolina. As part of its museum activity, it operates excursion passenger trains, primarily on certain weekends and on special charters. The museum only runs scheduled excursion trains on 15 days in the calendar year. On those days, it runs four trains over the 10.2-mile round trip. In addition to the regularly scheduled operating days, it runs excursion trains on a charter basis. In 2005, SCMZ operated charters on 26 days. In each case, only one train was operated on the respective charter. A portion (4,650 feet) of the museums’s track is subject to a recent Lead Track Agreement between the museum and Norfolk Southern Corporation (NS), whereby NS will provide limited rail service to a commercial facility located along the museum’s track. This service will not involve SCMZ volunteers but will be conducted entirely by NS employees. The waiver would cover the museum’s operation of excursion trains on the museum’s trackage between Rockton, South Carolina, and Rion, South Carolina (approximately 5.1 miles). SCMZ has hours of service volunteers only. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request.
