[Docket Number FRA–2012–0024]
Petition for Extension of Waiver of
Compliance
Under part 211 of title 49 Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR), this
document provides the public notice
that on August 10, 2021, the Everett
Railroad Company (EV) petitioned the
Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
for an extension of a special approval/
waiver of compliance from certain
provisions of the Federal railroad safety
regulations contained at 49 CFR parts
215 (Railroad Freight Car Safety
Standards), 223 (Safety Glazing
Standards—Locomotives, Passenger
Cars and Cabooses), and 224
(Reflectorization of Rail Freight Rolling
Stock). The relevant FRA Docket
Number is FRA–2012–0024.
Specifically, EV requested to extend
its special approval pursuant to 49 CFR
215.203, Restricted cars, for one caboose
(EV 91517) that is more than 50 years
from the date of original construction.
EV also requests to extend its existing
relief from 49 CFR 215.303, Stenciling of
restricted cars; 223.15, Requirements for
existing cabooses; and 224.101, General
requirements. In support of its request,
EV states that the relief would allow the
caboose’s historical appearance to be
preserved for excursion, historical, and
public relations purposes, and that
installing FRA-certified glazing would
be costly and difficult.
A copy of the petition, as well as any
written communications concerning the
petition, is available for review online at
www.regulations.gov.
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 party desires
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 at http://

Communications received by October
18, 2021 will be considered by FRA
before final action is taken. Comments
received after that date will be
considered if practicable. Anyone can
search the electronic form of any written
communications and comments
received into any of our dockets by the
name of the individual submitting the
comment (or signing the document, if
submitted on behalf of an association,
business, labor union, etc.). Under 5
U.S.C. 553(c), the U.S. Department of
Transportation (DOT) solicits comments
from the public to better inform its
