FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2019–0036. Specifically, GLR requests relief from §§ 230.112 and 230.113 to allow Locomotive Number GLR 12 to be maintained to Baldwin Locomotive Works (BLW) standards for narrow-gage locomotives. GLR 12 was built in 1927, and is a 36-inch narrow gage locomotive. GLR 12 was used on a shortline in freight and passenger service until its retirement in the 1950s. It was subsequently sold to private individuals and moved to California to be used on various tourist/excursion trains. In the 1980s, a new boiler was installed and extensive repairs were made to the running gear. It was used frequently throughout the 1990s at the Silver Wood Amusement Park until its sale to the Colorado Historical Society in 2005 and was in service on GLR from 2005–2007. By letter on April 7, 2008, FRA brought GLR under the agency’s jurisdiction. During an inspection of the entire locomotive, it was determined that the inside gage (back-to-back spacing) exceeds the safety limits under 49 CFR 230.112(b). The actual width of the locomotive is 331⁄2 inches. The allowable range is 321⁄2 to 327⁄8 inches wide. The locomotive was built to BLW’s narrow-gage standards, which allow wider back-to-back dimensions and narrower flange widths for narrow gage engines. These alternate standard dimensions were primarily used in areas with prevalent sharp curves and poor track conditions. In addition to the wider back-to-back dimension used by Baldwin, a narrow flange width (new) that measures 11⁄2 inches is used versus the 13⁄4-inch flange, which is the standard Association of American Railroads narrow flange. GLR also seeks relief from § 230.113(g) regarding the minimum thickness of the tire’s flange. The requirement for condemning a flange for insufficient width is 15⁄16 of an inch based upon a new thickness of 13⁄4 inches. Because the new flange thickness on GLR 12’s flanges was 11⁄2 inches, GLR requests that the condemning limit for this locomotive be 13⁄16 of an inch based upon the reduced initial width. GLR states that it has safely operated this locomotive for several years without any wheel problems prior to coming under FRA’s jurisdiction. GLR believes that there is no practical way to modify the chassis components to comply with the regulatory requirements as the basic design of the locomotive’s brake and spring rigging and driving boxes will E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
