The identifying mark, type of car, year built, number of windows and the estimated replacement glazing cost for each car are as follows: • New York Central ‘‘Hickory Creek,’’ Observation/Lounge/Sleeper, 1948, 28, $35,000. • New York Central No. 43, Tavern/ Lounge, 1947, 25, $30,000. • New York Central No. 37, Tavern/ Lounge, 1947, 25, $30,000. • Pennsylvania Railroad 1547, Coach/Lounge, 1949, 25, $28,000. • URHS 326, Coach, 1950, 26, $30,000. • URHS 329, Coach, 1953, 33, $33,000. URHS has collected this historic equipment so as to operate it in conjunction with a future New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center. Part of this effort includes operating these cars on various short line railroads. For example, the New York Central ‘‘Hickory Creek’’ and the New York Central No. 43 periodically (10 trips/ year) operate from New York, to various other destinations in the country. The other four cars: The New York Central No. 37, Pennsylvania Railroad 1547, URHS 326 and URHS 329 are operated on the Cape May Seashore Lines between Richland and Tuckahoe (15 miles); and between Cape May Court House and Cape May, New Jersey (13 miles), with a maximum speed of 30 mph. These cars were restored over the past 10 years, and all are equipped with laminated safety plate glazing. URHS states that they are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and have little income so that it would be prohibitive for them to re-equip these cars with the FRA certified glazing per provisions of 49 CFR 223.15 Requirements for existing passenger cars. They are therefore seeking a waiver of compliance from provisions that require certified glazing for the passenger cars listed above, and presently located in Tuckahoe and Lebanon, New Jersey. 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.

United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey

[Docket Number FRA-2010-0079]

    The United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey (URHS) of 
Jackson, New Jersey, has petitioned for a permanent waiver of 
compliance for six passenger cars from the requirements of the Railroad 
Safety Glazing Standards, Title 49 CFR Part 223, which require 
certified glazing in all windows. The identifying mark, type of car, 
year built, number of windows and the estimated replacement glazing 
cost for each car are as follows:
     New York Central ``Hickory Creek,'' Observation/Lounge/
Sleeper, 1948, 28, $35,000.
     New York Central No. 43, Tavern/Lounge, 1947, 25, $30,000.
     New York Central No. 37, Tavern/Lounge, 1947, 25, $30,000.
     Pennsylvania Railroad 1547, Coach/Lounge, 1949, 25, 
$28,000.
     URHS 326, Coach, 1950, 26, $30,000.
     URHS 329, Coach, 1953, 33, $33,000.
    URHS has collected this historic equipment so as to operate it in 
conjunction with a future New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center. 
Part of this effort includes operating these cars on various short line 
railroads. For example, the New York Central ``Hickory Creek'' and the 
New York Central No. 43 periodically (10 trips/year) operate from New 
York, to various other destinations in the country. The other four 
cars: The New York Central No. 37, Pennsylvania Railroad 1547, URHS 326 
and URHS 329 are operated on the Cape May Seashore Lines between 
Richland and Tuckahoe (15 miles); and between Cape May Court House and 
Cape May, New Jersey (13 miles), with a maximum speed of 30 mph. These 
cars were restored over the past 10 years, and all are equipped with 
laminated safety plate glazing.
    URHS states that they are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and 
have little income so that it would be prohibitive for them to re-equip 
these cars with the FRA certified glazing per provisions of 49 CFR 
223.15 Requirements for existing passenger cars. They are therefore 
seeking a waiver of compliance from provisions that require certified 
glazing for the passenger cars listed above, and presently located in 
Tuckahoe and Lebanon, New Jersey.
    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.
