Federal Railroad Administration September 26, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Safety Glazing Standards
Document Number: 2014-22919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-26
Agency: Federal Railroad Administration, Department of Transportation
FRA proposes to revise and clarify existing regulations related to the use of glazing materials in the windows of locomotives, passenger cars, and cabooses. This proposed rule would reduce paperwork and other economic burdens on the rail industry by removing a stenciling requirement for locomotives, passenger cars, and cabooses that are required to be equipped with glazing. This proposed rule would also clarify the application of the regulations to antiquated equipment and to the end locations of all equipment to provide more certainty to the rail industry and more narrowly address FRA's safety concerns. FRA is also proposing to clarify the definition of passenger car and separately to update the rule by removing certain compliance dates that are no longer necessary.
