FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2016–0125. AOSR maintains and operates the locomotive number 1293, a 4–6–2 Pacific Class type steam locomotive built by the Canadian Locomotive Works in 1948 for the Canadian Pacific Railway. AOSR requests relief from performing the 1,472 service day inspection (SDI) required by 49 CFR 231.17, for number 1293, as it pertains to the inspection of the boiler. AOSR is requesting an additional 3 calendar years before performing the 1,472 SDI. The previous SDI was performed on May 4, 2002. Granting relief will allow number 1293 a SDI period of 18 calendar years, while not exceeding the 1,472 service days. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:02 Apr 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 AOSR sporadically operates number 1293 on the Ohio Central Railroad (OHCR), part of the Genesee & Wyoming Corporation (GWRR). AOSR’s justification for requesting relief is that number 1293 has only operated for a total 285 service days within the 15 calendar year period. Due to the purchase of OHCR by the GWRR in 2008, AOSR now only operates number 1293 for static and switching displays at its facility while under steam. Since 2008, number 1293 has tallied 34 service days. AOSR anticipates that number 1293 will be used for approximately 34 additional service days during the requested time extension.

assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2016-0125.
    AOSR maintains and operates the locomotive number 1293, a 4-6-2 
Pacific Class type steam locomotive built by the Canadian Locomotive 
Works in 1948 for the Canadian Pacific Railway. AOSR requests relief 
from performing the 1,472 service day inspection (SDI) required by 49 
CFR 231.17, for number 1293, as it pertains to the inspection of the 
boiler. AOSR is requesting an additional 3 calendar years before 
performing the 1,472 SDI. The previous SDI was performed on May 4, 
2002. Granting relief will allow number 1293 a SDI period of 18 
calendar years, while not exceeding the 1,472 service days.
    AOSR sporadically operates number 1293 on the Ohio Central Railroad 
(OHCR), part of the Genesee & Wyoming Corporation (GWRR). AOSR's 
justification for requesting relief is that number 1293 has only 
operated for a total 285 service days within the 15 calendar year 
period. Due to the purchase of OHCR by the GWRR in 2008, AOSR now only 
operates number 1293 for static and switching displays at its facility
