FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2017–0130. In its petition, AAR requests a waiver of compliance from the requirement of 49 CFR 232.205(b)–Class I brake testinitial terminal inspection, 232.209(a)— Class II brake tests—intermediate inspection, 232.211(a)—Class III brake tests-trainline continuity inspection, and 232.217(c)—Train brake tests conducted using yard air; for the common element that the test or inspection must be performed if (among other requirements) the car or cars have been off-air for more than four hours. AAR requests that the four-hour off-air restrictions in these four regulations be replaced by a 24-hour off-air restriction, which would reflect substantial advancements in air brake technology since the rule was promulgated, and would harmonize United States and Canadian operations.
