National Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council (NEMSAC); Notice of Federal Advisory Committee Meeting, 9297-9298 [2012-3624]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 32 / Thursday, February 16, 2012 / Notices DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2012–0002] srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated December 19, 2011, Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad (DSNG) has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR Part 230, Steam Locomotive Inspection and Maintenance Standards. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2012– 0002. DSNG is a tourist railroad that operates between Durango and Silverton, CO. The railroad maintains six narrow gauge (36-inch) steam locomotives; four 1925 Baldwin 2–8–2 locomotives and two 1923 Alco 2–8–2 locomotives. All of these locomotives have received previous 1,472 serviceday inspections (SDI) in accordance with 49 CFR 230.17 and will soon receive their second 1,472 SDI due to an accumulation of service days rather than an expiration of the 15 years permitted by 49 CFR 230.17. Locomotive No. 480, a 1925 Baldwin 2–8–2, has accumulated 1,307 days of service. This locomotive is currently removed from service due to a crack found on the knuckle of the rear flue sheet necessitating repair or replacement. Replacement was chosen due to the age of the existing flue sheet and the added safety of replacement versus repairing the crack in place. Replacement requires that all of the boiler flues will have to be removed to affect the repair. The flues will be removed 165 service days earlier than required for the 1,472 SDI. While the flues are removed, DSNG will clean and inspect the boiler interior as required by 49 CFR 230.31 and 230.32(b)(2), and the applicable portions of 49 CFR 230.32(a). DSNG requests relief from 49 CFR 230.31(a) with respect to timeframe, and 49 CFR 230.32(b)(3) with respect to boiler exterior. DSNG desires to perform the interior portion of the 1,472 SDI; return the locomotive back into service for the remainder of the 2012 operating season; and complete the exterior portion of the 1,472 SDI at or before the expiration of its present 1,472 serviceday cycle. DSNG states that granting of relief will allow extensive monetary savings, as removing and replacing the flues twice within 12 months would be VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 Feb 15, 2012 Jkt 226001 burdensome and costly with a negligible effect on safety. The request is for permission to perform the interior boiler inspection earlier than required. The use of service time for the next 1,472 SDI will start with the first firing of the boiler after returning to service, not at the completion of the exterior inspection. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at https://www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
