Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway Company [Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2010– 0001] The Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway Company (SCBG) seeks a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of 49 CFR part 215, Railroad Freight Car Safety Standards, specifically 49 CFR 215.303 (Stenciling of restricted cars), which requires that restricted railroad freight cars shall be stenciled or marked in clearly legible letters with the letter ‘‘R’’ and a series of designated terms to completely indicate the basis for the restricted operation of the car. In addition, SCBG seeks a waiver of compliance from all of 49 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 part 224 (Reflectorization of Rail Freight Rolling Stock). The petition concerns 10 SCBG freight cars numbered: SCBG 401–402, 501–504 and 701–704, which are railroad flat cars converted to passenger carriage cars for tourist and excursion railroad service by the addition of seating, side structures, and steps. Each of the SCBG freight cars in the present petition is more than 50 years old, measured from the date of original construction, and these freight cars are the subject of a parallel petition for special approval for continued operation under § 215.203(c). Therefore, in the first portion of its petition, SCBG seeks a waiver of the requirement for stencilling found in § 215.303, as the railroad states that the stencilling would detract from both the aesthetic and historical nature of the vintage rail car equipment. As SCBG passenger carriage cars are not interchanged, SCBG suggests that the record-keeping requirements of the stencilling may be preserved by maintaining a permanent file of the restrictive conditions at the local SCBG office. Additionally, SCBG petitions for relief from all of the requirements of 49 CFR part 224, as the railroad states that reflectorization would detract from both the aesthetic and historical nature of their vintage equipment.
