SCRM seeks a waiver from compliance with 49 CFR 240.201(d), which provides that only certified persons may operate trains or locomotives. The waiver would affect only persons who participate in the ‘‘engineer for a day’’ program, which would allow non-certified persons to operate a diesel electric locomotive as the ‘‘engineer.’’ Various restrictions would be placed on these operations. The waiver would cover operations on 5,280 feet of main line track between Milepost (MP) 4 and MP 5 that would be placed under absolute block control (section of track can only be occupied by one train at a time) during these operations. This section of track does not have any public highway-rail grade crossings on it, and is located largely within the confines of Rion Quarry, which is no longer in operation. SCRM has an annual budget of approximately $180,000.00. SCRM has no employees. All excursion trains are staffed by volunteers who have been through testing and certification for their respective train crew duties. The ‘‘engineer for a day’’ program would allow SCRM to supplement its education programs and generate needed additional income for preservation and for providing a railroad experience to persons visiting the museum.

affect only persons who participate in the ``engineer for a day'' 
program, which would allow non-certified persons to operate a diesel 
electric locomotive as the ``engineer.'' Various restrictions would be
