Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 180 / Friday, September 16, 2011 / Notices petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a modification to its waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR parts 232 and 215. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2010–0100. BRG seeks a modification to its waiver of compliance with certain requirements of 49 CFR part 232, Brake System Safety Standards for Freight and Other NonPassenger Trains and Equipment; Endof-Train Devices and 49 CFR part 215, Railroad Freight Car Safety Standards. Presently, BRG’s relief permits trains transferred by Union Pacific Railroad (UP) (under Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2007–28340 from the U.S./Mexico border interchange with the Kansas City Southern De Mexico Railway (KCSM) at Brownsville, Texas) to move from BRG’s interchange point with UP at Milepost (MP) 4.48 to the BRG inspection point between MP 8.0 and MP 9.0, where required FRA inspections are performed. Occasionally, trains destined for interchange to BRG are delayed at UP’s Olmito Yard by additional Federal agency inspection activities. BRG petitions for a modification to its present relief to allow the railroad to pick up trains at Olmito Yard (in lieu of the interchange point at MP 4.48). On those occasions, BRG would continue to perform the required FRA inspections between MP 8.0 and MP 9.0 in accordance with its present relief under FRA–2010–0100. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at http://www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
