Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR), this document provides the public notice that by a document 
dated December 6, 2013, the Association of American Railroad (AAR) 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 213.103, Ballast: 
general. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2013-0137.
    AAR, on behalf of itself and its member railroads, requests to 
study and redefine when ballast material fails under load. AAR proposes 
to conduct and observe specific performance-based conditions and 
remedial action procedures existing in isolation under train operations 
for a 1-year test period. The proposal identifies five specific 
subdivisions on the BNSF Railway that will serve as test locations 
exempt from the current safety standard. AAR's petition states that the 
Federal safety regulations are vague and do not clearly define when 
ballast material fails to support the track structure according to the 
current description and application of the Federal regulation. When 
ballast material fails, ``the condition must be brought into compliance 
or track speed reduced by one class of track below the class of track 
the track geometry complies with, except Class 1 track may remain at 
Class 1 speeds.'' AAR proposes that ``for purposes of this waiver, non-
compliant ballast exists where the track drainage in mainline track is 
impeded for 15\1/2\ feet or more without a joint present or 10 feet or 
more with a joint present, such that the ability of the track structure 
to maintain track geometry is impaired by a muddy pumping action 
occurring because of fines and other material originating from the 
track structure or train operations and water is present.''

concerning the petition, is available for review online at
