Also, this notice provides guidance on how to determine a foreign insurance company’s foreign loss payment patterns.

[Docket Number FRA-2010-0001]


Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this 
provides the public notice that on August 1, 2018, Santa Cruz Big Trees 
& Pacific Railway Company (SCBG) petitioned the Federal Railroad 
Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions 
of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR parts 
215 and 224. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2010-0001.
    Specifically, SCBG requests an extension of relief from 49 CFR 
215.303, Stenciling of restricted cars, and 49 CFR part 224, 
Reflectorization of Rail Freight Rolling Stock, for 10 SCBG freight 
cars numbered: SCBG 401-402, 501-504 and 701-704, which are railroad 
flat cars converted to passenger carriage cars for tourist and 
excursion railroad service by the addition of seating, side structures, 
and steps. Each of these freight cars is more than 50 years old, 
measured from the date of original construction, and are the subject of 
a parallel petition for special approval for continued operation under 
Sec.  [thinsp]215.203(c). SCBG states that the required stenciling and 
reflectorization would detract from both the aesthetic and historical 
nature of the vintage rail car equipment. As SCBG passenger cars are 
not interchanged, SCBG suggests that the stenciling recordkeeping 
requirements may be preserved by maintaining a permanent file of the 
restrictive conditions at the local SCBG office.
    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
