On August 31, 2000, the Union Pacific Railroad (UP) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking a waiver of compliance with the requirements of 49 CFR 214.329. UP requested relief that would permit the use of a system described by UP as the automatic train approach warning system (TAWS). FRA subsequently scheduled a public hearing seeking comments from interested parties on UP's proposal (65 FR 71200, November 29, 2000).
UP has withdrawn its petition for waiver (see Docket No. FRA-2000-7912, Document No. 11). Accordingly, the public hearing scheduled for this matter on Thursday, January 4, 2001 in Omaha, Nebraska is hereby cancelled.Start Signature
