Requested Administrative Waiver of the Coastwise Trade Laws, 51464-51465 [2011-21124]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 51464 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 160 / Thursday, August 18, 2011 / Notices operation of both PA–5 trains with failed ATC equipment, and MOW work equipment that will not be fitted with onboard ATC equipment. It is PATH’s intention to retire the existing PA–4 fleet from passenger service, but to retain some of these PA– 4 cars to function as MOW work equipment. PATH will modify the interiors of some of these vehicles so that they are configured to transport tools and equipment. The PA–4 work vehicles would retain their trip cock equipment, and as such, the STDS would provide enforced braking for these vehicles at stop (red) signals. Further, since the PA–4 cars reliably shunt track circuits, they will be continuously detected by both the STDS and the CBTC system, thereby preventing train-to-train collisions. PATH’s justification for relief is that the proposed use of non-equipped PA– 4 vehicles for MOW work equipment does not introduce any new or different safety hazards to the existing operation, and provides additional safety elements not available for other types of MOW equipment. The installation of the ATC and/or CBTC systems and the STDS by December 31, 2015, in conjunction with well-established operating rules and procedures, will in fact provide enhanced safety for such operations.
