[FR Doc. 2018–26329 Filed 12–3–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2012–0091] Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62657 that by a letter dated November 20, 2018, CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSX) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to include CSX in a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 232, Brake System Safety Standards for Freight and Other Non-Passenger Trains and Equipment. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2012– 0091. Specifically, CSX seeks relief with respect to the application of 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)—Class I brake test-initial terminal inspection and § 232.207(b)(1)—Class IA brake tests1,000-mile inspection for trains operating in distributive power mode. CSX requests to extend the maximum allowable brake pipe air flow from the present regulatory limit of 60 cubic feet per minute (CFM) to 90 CFM for distributed power-equipped trains under specified operating conditions. On March 26, 2013, FRA granted a pilot test waiver to the BNSF Railway Company for these same provisions. Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway were added as parties to the test waiver on November 21, 2014, and Union Pacific Railroad was added on March 4, 2015. On May 3, 2017, FRA granted a change in status from a test waiver to a waiver of compliance. CSX is petitioning FRA to make CSX a party to the same waiver. If granted, CSX states it would agree to comply with the same conditions as set forth in FRA’s May 3, 2017 letter. 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. The Docket Operations Facility is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested parties desire an opportunity for oral comment and a public hearing, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number and may be submitted by any of the following methods: E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1
