ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. This request for clearance reflects requirements necessary to ensure safety-of-flight by ensuring that complete and adequate training, testing, checking, and experience is obtained and maintained by those who operate under certain parts of FAA’s regulations and use flight simulation in lieu of aircraft for these functions.

Type of Review: This is a reinstatement of an information collection. Background: This information collection requires sponsors of flight SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 simulation training devices (FSTD) to systematically plan for and implement the requirements of part 60 and the associated Qualification Performance Standard (QPS). Sponsors have been sub-grouped into small, medium, and large based on the number of training centers. A sponsor will be guided through the administrative requirements by the local principal operations inspector or training center program manager and by representatives of the National Simulator Program staff regarding any FSTD for which the sponsor applicant seeks qualification. The FAA has determined this information collection is necessary to amend the Qualification Performance Standards for FSTDs for the primary purpose of improving existing technical standards and introducing new technical standards for full stall and stick pusher maneuvers, upset recognition and recovery maneuvers, maneuvers conducted in airborne icing conditions, takeoff and landing maneuvers in gusting crosswinds, and bounced landing recovery maneuvers. These new and improved technical standards are intended to fully define FSTD fidelity requirements for conducting new flight training tasks introduced through changes to the air carrier training requirements. This information collection also addresses updated FSTD technical standards to better align with the current international FSTD evaluation guidance and introduces a new FSTD level that expands the number of qualified flight training tasks in a fixed base flight training device. This information collection will help ensure that the training and testing environment is accurate and realistic, in accordance with regulations.

[Docket No. FD 36154]


Goose Lake Railway, LLC--Change in Operator Exemption--LRY, LLC 
d.b.a. Lake Railway

    Goose Lake Railway, LLC (GOOS),\1\ a Class III rail carrier, has 
filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to assume 
operations over approximately 64.11 miles of rail line consisting of a 
part of the Modoc Subdivision from milepost 445.6 near MacArthur, Cal., 
to milepost 508.0 near Perez, Cal., and a portion of the Lakeview 
Branch extending from a connection with the Modoc Subdivision at 
milepost 456.89 to milepost 458.60, in Alturas, Cal. (the Line).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In a previous proceeding, GOOS used the acronym GLRY to 
refer to itself. In keeping with the railroad's reporting mark 
issued by the Association of American Railroads, it now uses its 
reporting mark designation of GOOS. See Goose Lake Ry.--Change in 
Operator Exemption--LRY, LLC d.b.a. Lake Railway, FD 36143 (STB 
served Aug. 25, 2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GOOS states that the Line is owned by the Union Pacific Railroad 
Company (UP), and LRY, LLC d.b.a. Lake Railway (LRY) currently operates 
it pursuant to a lease agreement.\2\ GOOS states that, under the new 
operating agreement, GOOS will replace LRY as the operator of the Line 
upon consummation and LRY will have no further common carrier 
obligation with respect to the Line. GOOS also states that LRY has

[[Page 51330]]

agreed to terminate its operation over the Line upon consummation of 
the transaction between GOOS and UP and does not object to the proposed 
change in operators.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See LRY, LLC--Lease & Operation Exemption--Union Pac. R.R., 
FD 35389 (STB served July 30, 2010); and LRY, LLC--Lease & Operation 
Exemption--Union Pac. R.R., FD 35250 (STB served Dec. 18, 2009).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GOOS states that the proposed change in operators does not involve 
any provision or agreement that would limit future interchange with a 
third-party connecting carrier. GOOS certifies that its projected 
annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the 
creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier and would not exceed $5 
million.
    Under 49 CFR 1150.42(b), a change in operators requires that notice 
be given to shippers. GOOS states that there are no active shippers on 
the Line and that all current freight traffic on the Line originates or 
terminates on connecting Lines. GOOS therefore submits that the shipper 
notice requirement is not applicable to this transaction.
    The earliest this transaction can be consummated is November 19, 
2017, the effective date of the exemption.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the 
exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than November 9, 
2017 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. 
FD 36154, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, one copy of each 
pleading must be served on Robert A. Wimbish, Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 
North Wacker Drive, Suite 920, Chicago, IL 60606.
    According to GOOS, this action is excluded from environmental 
review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic preservation reporting 
requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b)(l).
