FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2010– 0129. Specifically, SERA requests relief from the stenciling requirement contained in 49 CFR 215.303, Stenciling of restricted cars, for 5 freight cars, one gondola and four box cars modified as ‘‘open air concession’’ passenger cars to give passengers a pleasurable ride in the Sacramento and Coastal Mountain area. SERA operates the subject cars on the 40-mile Mendocino Division between Willits and Ft. Bragg, California, and on the Sacramento Division for 14 miles between Woodland and Lovdal Siding near West Sacramento, California. SERA does not interchange this equipment with the general system of transportation. The maximum speed of operation is 20 miles per hour. The cars are typically operated no more than 40 miles in a day and approximately 75 days per year. SERA states that it continues to maintain all equipment, operations and track to FRA compliance standards and there has not been an equipment-related derailment of any SERA tourist or dinner train in over 10 years. These cars are painted to match passenger cars. Stenciling according to § 215.303 would be disruptive to the appearance of the train. Further, stenciling indicating some restriction might invite unwarranted concerns by passengers. 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.
