Download as PDF 64396 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 29, 2008 / Notices The railroads were granted an alternate standard July 4, 2004, for M7–MU locomotives that required that periodic brake equipment maintenance be performed at an interval not to exceed every 1,840 days. The railroads most recent request dated September 12, 2008, states that the M7 MU locomotive tests are near their completion and the railroad requests to extend the testing beyond the 1,840 days and perform age exploration similar to the testing of electronic brake systems on more traditional freight and passenger locomotives. The M7 air brake system is integrated with the propulsion system, and a full pneumatic back up of the emergency brake application function is available through the emergency brake valve and conductors valve. The M7 utilizes various systems to monitor, diagnose, and report brake equipment functions to a centralized diagnostic system on board the equipment. At the original submission, the railroads provided required technical documentation, a Preliminary Hazard Analysis, Failure Modes and Effect Analysis, Maintainability Analysis, and has served a copy of the petition on designated representatives of its employees. A list of the names and addresses of the persons served is available at the DOT docket site contained in this notice. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments.
