[FR Doc. 2018–17567 Filed 8–14–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–EX–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2018–0059] daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that on July 26, 2018, the Grand Canyon Railway (GCRY) has 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 230, Steam Locomotive Inspection and Maintenance Standards. FRA assigned the petition docket number FRA–2018– 0059. GCRY maintains and operates No. 29, a 2–8–0 ‘‘Consolidation’’ type steam locomotive built by the American Locomotive Works in 1906 for the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad. GCRY occasionally operates No. 29 to pull excursion trains from Williams, AZ, to the Depot at the rim of the Grand Canyon. GCRY requests relief from performing the 1,472 service day inspection (SDI), for No. 29, as it pertains to the inspection of the boiler every 15 calendar years or 1,472 service days. See 49 CFR 230.17. This relief would extend the inspection date from May 2, 2019, to the completion of the GCRY operating season on October 31, 2019. It is expected that they would accrue approximately 15 service days during this extension period. At the last annual inspection, the locomotive accrued 410 service days toward the allowable 1,472 service days. GCRY also requests relief from performing the annual inspection required by 49 CFR 230.16. This relief would extend the current annual inspection by only 15 service days.
