Petition for Waiver of Compliance, 61121-61122 [2017-27776]

Download as PDF ethrower on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 246 / Tuesday, December 26, 2017 / Notices solid-state electronics have the ability to monitor lamp driver circuits for foreign and/or undesired voltage. CN explains that if the lamp driver monitoring circuits detect foreign or undesirable voltage, all voltage produced by the lamp driver is switched off by the central processing unit as defined by the executive software. CN states that this relief would allow a continuing and industry-wide practice that ensures absolute safety under undesirable conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to, component failures on lamp driver modules, grounds, incorrect9*/wiring and cross connections. CN’s position is that it is far safer to remove all operating voltage to affected lamps, versus running the risk of having an undesired aspect displayed. The relief is sought for all current solid-state applications and all future solid-state applications on CN Southern Region, inclusive of all United States properties.

(DGVR) 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 223.

The locomotive was originally built strictly for branch line service and continues to be used exclusively in this manner.

DGVR believes that this locomotive can be safely operated throughout the rural area with the current non-compliant safety-type glazing. The cost to DGVR for installation of all new window frames and compliant FRA Type I & II glazing is significant, with only a marginal increase in safety due to the low speed.

The FAA Act, at 27 U.S.C. 204, also imposes certain requirements for basic permits and authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to prescribe the manner and form of all applications for basic permits. Under that authority, the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 1 require basic permit holders to apply for an amended permit using form TTB F 5100.18 when changes occur in the name, trade name, or address of the permitted business. The regulations also require that a permittee immediately notify TTB of any change in ownership, management, or control of the permitted business, which may be done using TTB F 5100.18. (Such applications and notifications also may be submitted via TTB’s electronic Permits Online (PONL) system.)

[Docket Number FRA-2007-27868]


Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this 
provides the public notice that on November 16, 2017, the Durbin & 
Greenbrier Valley Railroad, Inc. (DGVR) 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 
223. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2007-27868.
    Specifically, DGVR seeks to renew its waiver of compliance from the 
glazing regulations in 49 CFR 223.11, Requirements for existing 
locomotives, for one locomotive, identified as DGVR Locomotive Number 
82. The locomotive is a 1,500 horsepower diesel electric locomotive, 
model BL-2, built by Electro Motive Division of General Motors in 1948 
and still has the original glazing intact. The locomotive was 
originally built strictly for branch line service and continues to be 
used exclusively in this manner. The locomotive is housed in Belington, 
West Virginia, and is used sporadically on track leased by a subsidiary 
division of DGVR, the West Virginia Central Division. DGVR states that 
DGVR Locomotive Number 82 is used in a limited manner for freight and 
excursion service along 89 miles of rural and wilderness track. The 
maximum authorized speed over this track does not exceed Class 2 track 
speeds. DGVR states that there are only two overpasses over the track, 
both of which are patrolled by local law enforcement officials on a 
regular basis, and that there is no history of vandalism along this 
track. DGVR believes that this locomotive can be safely operated
