Specifically, DCTA requests relief from certain provisions of 49 CFR part 240, Qualification and Certification of Locomotive Engineers, and part 242, Qualification and Certification of Conductors. The request was assigned Docket Number FRA–2017–0126. The relief is requested as part of DCTA’s proposed implementation of and participation in FRA’s Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) pilot project. DCTA seeks to shield reporting employees and the railroad from mandatory punitive sanctions that would otherwise arise as provided in 49 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 Jan 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 CFR 240.117(e)(1)–(4); 240.305(a)(l)–(4) and (a)(6); 240.307; 242.403(b), (c), (e)(l)–(4), (e)(6)–(11), (f)(l)–(2) and 242.407. The C3RS pilot project encourages certified operating crew members to report close calls and protect the employees and the railroad from discipline or sanctions arising from the incidents reported per the C3RS Implementing Memorandum of Understanding (IMOU). 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 Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

(DMVW), 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 229. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2017–0127. Specifically, DMVW seeks a waiver of compliance from a portion of 49 CFR 229.47, Emergency brake valve, for five SD50 locomotive units (Numbers 5408, 5418, 5439, 5451, and 5454) and three SD60 locomotive units (Numbers 5500, 5501, and 5544). The five SD50 units were purchased from Canadian National Railway (CN) on December 4, 2008, and the three SD60 units were also purchased from CN on September 15, 2017. Upon purchase of the three SD60 units, DMVW discovered that CN had a previous waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 229.47 for these units. The eight units now owned and operated by DMVW are all of the same car body type and all are not equipped with the rear conductor brake valve. Each of the units have rear walkways and switch style steps, thus allowing the engineer to see the person riding on the back along with radio communication. These units will be used in road service and will always be paired together. DMVW has been operating the SD50 units for almost 10 years and have not had any incident or reason to need the rear brake valve. DMVW believes that 49 CFR 229.47 pertains to covered car body units with no rear walkway or switch style steps. Therefore, DMVW is requesting a waiver from the requirement that an emergency brake E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1
