Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 11, 2019 / Notices Issued in Des Moines, Washington, on June 4, 2019. Paul Siegmund, Acting Manager, Transport Standards Branch. Petition for Exemption Docket No.: FAA–2016–7819. Petitioner: Textron Aviation Inc. Section(s) of 14 CFR Affected: § 25.813(e). Description of Relief Sought: Textron Aviation Inc., is seeking an amendment to Exemption No. 17119. That exemption provides relief from 14 CFR 25.813(e) by allowing the installation of interior mid-cabin doors on Model 700 airplanes. Exemption No. 17119 is applicable to private-use (not for hire, not for common carriage) operations only. If amended, Exemption No. 17119 would remove the private-use only restriction and allow the airplane, with interior mid-cabin doors, to be used in for-hire and common-carriage operations. [FR Doc. 2019–12174 Filed 6–10–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2019–0043] khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Notice of Application for Approval of Discontinuance or Modification of a Railroad Signal System Under part 235 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and 49 U.S.C. 20502(a), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated May 23, 2019, Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval to discontinue or modify a signal system. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2019– 0043. Applicant: Union Pacific Railroad Company, Mr. Neal E. Hathaway, AVP Engineering—Signal & Telecom, 1400 Douglas Street, MS 0910, Omaha, NE 68179. Specifically, UP requests approval to discontinue cab signals between control point (CP) S001 at milepost (MP) 0.60 and CP S082 at MP 81.60 on the Portland subdivision in the state of Oregon. UP states the reason for the proposed discontinuance is a positive train control (PTC) system, compliant with 49 CFR part 236, subpart I, and certified accordingly, was placed in service on the entire Portland subdivision, including the limits described above, in March 2017. Since that time, over 2.5 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 million train-miles of PTC operations have been accumulated on the Portland subdivision without a critical anomaly. Additionally, PTC operations have been conducted under the provisions of a waiver, Docket Number FRA–2016– 0108, which allows for the use of PTC in lieu of cab signals on the Portland subdivision and elsewhere on UP where automatic cab signal (ACS), automatic train control, and automatic train stop systems are present. To ensure that an equivalent or greater level of safety is maintained upon discontinuance of the ACS and to meet the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 20157(j)(1), UP asserts it will promulgate operating rules requiring that any train on which PTC fails to initialize, cuts out, or malfunctions comply with operating restrictions in accordance with 49 CFR 236.1029, while operating within former ACS limits of the Portland subdivision. UP explains it believes that the combination of the current levels of PTC reliability and, utilization, combined with the application of operating restrictions under failure conditions result in a level of safe operation which justifies discontinuance of the ACS system on the Portland subdivision.
