FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2014–0066. UP seeks a waiver of the requirement in 49 CFR 229.29(b) which requires that the air flow method (AFM) indicator on a locomotive be calibrated in accordance with 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)(iii) at intervals not to exceed 92 days. UP states that calibration of the AFM indicator requires them to take locomotives out of service every 92 days and into a facility where the calibration can be performed, even though the locomotive may otherwise be eligible for 184-day periodic inspections. UP further states that the AFM indicator is used only to conduct AFM brake tests, and that the same air brake tests may be performed by the leakage test method, which does not use the AFM indicator. If the waiver is granted for locomotives with past due AFM indicator calibration, UP plans to inform the crew of the exceeded interval and require that air brake tests be done in accordance with the leakage test method of 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)(i), with no resulting adverse impact on the safety of operations.

[Docket Number FRA-2014-0066]


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 May 28, 2014, Union Pacific Railroad (UP) 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 229. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2014-0066.
    UP seeks a waiver of the requirement in 49 CFR 229.29(b) which 
requires that the air flow method (AFM) indicator on a locomotive be 
calibrated in accordance with 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)(iii) at intervals 
not to exceed 92 days. UP states that calibration of the AFM indicator 
requires them to take locomotives out of service every 92 days and into 
a facility where the calibration can be performed, even though the 
locomotive may otherwise be eligible for 184-day periodic inspections. 
UP further states that the AFM indicator is used only to conduct AFM 
brake tests, and that the same air brake tests may be performed by the 
leakage test method, which does not use the AFM indicator. If the 
waiver is granted for locomotives with past due AFM indicator 
calibration, UP plans to inform the crew of the exceeded interval and 
require that air brake tests be done in accordance with the leakage 
test method of 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)(i), with no resulting adverse 
impact on the safety of operations.
