FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2009–0124. JBP, located in San Carlos, CA, seeks an amendment to its permanent waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 238.203, Static end strength, 238.205, Anticlimbing mechanism, and 238.207, Link between coupling mechanism and car body. JPB is considering purchasing non-FRA-compliant electric multiple unit (EMU) vehicles, constructed to European safety standards, for its Caltrain commuter rail service between San Francisco and Gilroy, CA. JPB seeks to amend two of the nine conditions specified in FRA’s waiver decision letter dated May 27, 2010. Specifically, JPB requests that Condition 1 (that EMUs that are the subject of this waiver meet or exceed the crashworthiness performance levels identified and presented in the petition) be modified to align with proposed rule text for alternatively compliant Tier I equipment developed through the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee and its Engineering Task Force. Secondly, JPB requests removal of Condition 7 (that JPB submit a comprehensive temporal separation plan to FRA for approval before the EMUs are operated). JPB states that the proposed rule text does not require temporal separation because trains built to these new rules are considered as safe or safer in collisions than trains built to current Federal standards. In addition, JPB states that it is currently implementing Positive Train Control and new EMUs will be compatible with the system, thereby reducing the risk of an impact between freight and passenger trains. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at 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.
