[FR Doc. 2011–9385 Filed 4–18–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), notice is hereby given that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has received a request for a waiver of compliance from certain requirements of its safety standards. 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Apr 18, 2011 Jkt 223001 Mr. David Kloke [Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2011– 0011] Mr. David Kloke, a private individual, has constructed a newly built (2009) replica of a steam locomotive originally built in the 1800’s. The Leviathan #63 represents one of the four locomotives constructed by the Schenectady Locomotive Works for the Central Pacific Railroad in 1869; and is a sister to the Jupiter #60, of which a replica constructed in 1979, from the same blueprints and tooling is owned and operated by the National Park Service at Promontory Summit, Utah. The Leviathan is constructed to educate the public concerning early American railroad history and simultaneously convey knowledge about the design, capabilities, operation, and history of this type of locomotive. Mr. Kloke states that Leviathan is not to be put into regular commerce as either a passenger or freight locomotive. Nevertheless, it will occasionally pull some cars appropriate for its historic and educational mission, and will be used only for special events. As a newly constructed locomotive, Leviathan cannot avail itself of several provisions of Title 49 CFR that are grandfathered for antiquated equipment, such as Leviathan represents. By letter of February 4, 2011, and supplemental letter of March 31, 2011, Mr. Kloke petitions that due to the unique purpose, nature, and use of this locomotive, certain regulations under 49 CFR part 223, 231.15(b) and (d), and 231.17(c) should be determined to be inapplicable to the Leviathan. In the event FRA does not determine the inapplicability of these regulations, Mr. Kloke requests relief from 49 CFR part 223, Safety Glazing Standards (§ 223.9 Requirements for new or existing equipment) and 49 CFR part 231, Railroad Safety Appliance Standards (§ 231.15 (b) and (d), Steam locomotives used in road service—Pilot sill-steps and Side handholds and (§ 231.17(c), Specifications common to all steam locomotives—Handrails). 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. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 appropriate docket number (e.g., Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2011– 0011) and may be submitted by any of the following methods: • Web site: https:// www.regulations.gov.
