The individual petition is described below, including the party seeking relief, the regulatory provisions involved, the nature of the relief being requested, and the petitioner’s arguments in favor of relief. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES CSX Transportation (Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2008–0111) CSX Transportation (CSXT) petitioned FRA for a waiver from 49 CFR 213.113(a) to permit variance from the accepted practice of stop/start rail test hand verification for a continuous rail test pilot project for a period of 8 weeks on the main tracks of the North End subdivision between Richmond, Virginia, and Rocky Mount, North Carolina, milepost limits A0.0–123.2. Prior to beginning the pilot project, the North End subdivision main tracks will be rail tested with a conventional stop/ start rail test vehicle and any normally scheduled intervals during the pilot project will be maintained by convention stop/start rail test vehicle. The continuous high speed rail test vehicle will be a self propelled railbound ultrasound Sperry car operating at speeds up to 25 miles per hour in non-stop mode making weekly runs. Upon completion of each run, data will be analyzed offline by a group of experts with experience in this process. The analysis will categorize and prioritize suspect defect locations. Two teams of verifiers will then be sent out with field instruments to check locations based upon Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates. Locations will be checked 60 feet either side of suspect GPS point. Remedial actions will be applied as per 49 CFR 213.113 for confirmed rail defects. CSXT states that continuous rail testing will provide the capability to test track more frequently, minimizing the risk of rail service failure.

FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing.
