FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2017–0129. Applicant: National Railroad Passenger Corporation, Mr. Nicholas J. Croce III, PE, Deputy Chief Engineer C&S, Acting, 2995 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Amtrak is installing new clear block signals at Oak and Bush interlockings to establish NORAC Rule 562 territory, cab signals without fixed automatic block signals. As a result, Amtrak seeks to retire the fixed wayside signals numbers 651, 652, 672, 673, 695, and 696 on Tracks 2, 3, and 4 on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, Mid-Atlantic Division, Main Line, Philadelphia to Washington. All NORAC Rules will remain in effect. The existing advanced civil speed enforcement system (ACSES) will be modified to enforce a positive stop at Oak and Bush interlockings for a train with failed cab signal equipment unless the ‘‘C’’ signal is displayed allowing the failed train to enter the block. The reason for removal of the signals is to eliminate maintenance and operation of unnecessary hardware no longer needed, and to reduce delays to trains caused by failures of the signals. The signals are not required in NORAC Rule 562 territory. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
