The front, rear and side glazing does not conform to 49 CFR 223.11 glazing requirements; however, these windows are glazed with 1⁄4″ laminated safety glass that is in good condition with no discoloration. The locomotive is primarily used as a backup locomotive. The subject caboose, SSR 1469, is an ex D&RGW steel caboose with cupola that is used primarily as a ‘‘shoving platform.’’ This caboose was acquired with the original glazing in good condition with no discoloration, but does not meet the 49 CFR 223.13 glazing requirements. SSR states that they operate primarily in the Bureau of Land Management open range and agricultural environment. They do not experience any rock throwing or shooting at their equipment, and operate at a maximum speed of 10 mph. SSR states that the expenses of retrofitting the subject locomotive and caboose to comply with FRA glazing safety standards will impose an undue financial burden on their small railroad to protect from situations they do not encounter.
