(CSXT) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) requesting reconsideration of a prior FRA decision granting conditional relief from certain provisions of 49 CFR part 236. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2016–0116. In a May 30, 2017 decision, the FRA’s Railroad Safety Board (Board) conditionally approved CSXT’s petition for a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 236.60, Switch Shunting Circuit; Use Restricted. The Board stated in its decision the single condition of this relief was that it did not apply in Positive Train Control (PTC) territory or on tracks leading to PTC territory. CSXT states the May 30th decision did not provide an explanation why this condition was included. As CSXT explains in its request for reconsideration, under the requirements of the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–432, Oct. 16, 2008), and the Positive Train Control Enforcement and Implementation Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–73, 129 Stat. 576, 582, Oct. 29, 2015), all required PTC hardware must be installed on or before December 31, 2018. CSXT has determined that, to date, there are approximately 250 switches utilizing shunt only protection on subdivisions where PTC has been installed or must be installed by December 31, 2018. CSXT states that excluding all PTC territory and tracks leading to PTC territory from the waiver would require it to modify these 250 switches by adding track circuit breaks to each location on or before December 31, 2018. CSXT asserts that while it remains on track to meet its PTC hardware installation requirement, also requiring these shunt-only protected switches to be modified puts CSXT’s ability to meet this deadline into serious jeopardy, PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 because it would add a significant amount of unplanned work to Engineering Department employees. As an alternative to this requirement to modify shunt only protected switches in PTC territory, CSXT requests that the Board modify the waiver to allow CSXT to grandfather the current 250 shuntonly protected switches located in PTC territory or on tracks leading to PTC territory into this waiver.
