Start Preamble

In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated October 15, 2012, the Oil Creek and Titusville Lines (OCTL) has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for an extension of Waiver Docket Number FRA-2000-8267.

Specifically, OCTL seeks to extend a waiver for its ALCO Model S-2 locomotive, Number OCTL 85, from 49 CFR 223.11Requirements for existing locomotives, which requires safety glazing for existing locomotives.

FRA issued the initial waiver that granted OCTL relief on June 18, 2002, and FRA extended the waiver on October 12, 2007. OCTL 85 has been out of service since March 2012. The type of service in which the subject locomotive will be used has not changed since the original waiver. Additionally, OCTL states that OCTL 85's operations will continue to remain limited to Titusville, PA.

A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12-140, Washington, DC 20590. The Docket Operations Facility is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays.

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.
