TEXR requests a waiver ‘‘based on compliance with the FRAissued guideline ‘Technical Criteria and Procedures for Evaluating the Crashworthiness and Occupant Protection Performance of AlternativelyDesigned Passenger Rail Equipment for Use in Tier I Service’ and the proposed Appendix G to 49 CFR part 238.’’ Currently, these vehicles are being delivered and tested at the TEXR maintenance facility.

In addition, BNSF requests an exemption from the requirements of Title 49, United States Code (U.S.C.), section 20303, which prohibits the movement of a rail vehicle with defective or insecure equipment beyond the nearest available place at which the repairs can be made. See 49 U.S.C. 20306. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2018–0049. Specifically, BNSF petitions FRA to conduct a pilot program on a segment of their system to ‘‘demonstrate that the use of wheel temperature detectors (WTD) to prove brake health effectiveness (BHE) will improve safety, reduce risks to employees, and provide cost savings to the industry.’’ Currently, the effectiveness of railroad brake systems is verified by Class I initial terminal and Class IA intermediate brake tests. BNSF proposes to supplement these visual inspections with a wayside WTD, a device designed to directly measure the rise in wheel temperatures because of a brake application. BNSF asserts that such a measure of performance is objective, quantifiable, and independent of conditions that can impair a visual inspection; such as weather, lighting, human fatigue, or human error. BNSF states that a monitoring system using WTD data as an alternative to the intermediate brake inspections is expected to substantially improve the reliability of brake inspections, reduce on-line setouts, and increase faulty part replacement, to improve the safety performance of brake systems overall. BNSF plans to use pyrometer sensors, a technology also used for hot wheel E:\FR\FM\20JNN1.SGM 20JNN1
