ICR currently operates a total of five cycle trains and requests to extend the required mileage interval of the Class 1A brake tests of said trains from 1,000 miles to 1,323 miles. ICR acknowledges that the subject trains currently operate as extended-haul trains and that the distance between any two inspections can be 1,500 miles. ICR states that it seems logical that if a train is safe to travel 1,500 miles under the extendedhaul provisions, then there is no apparent danger in operating the trains as cycle trains for 1,323 miles between Class IA brake tests. In addition, ICR would enhance inspection quality by replacing the qualified person (transportation employee) with a qualified mechanical inspector (carman) during the Class 1A inspections.
