Federal Railroad Administration

[Docket Number FRA-2007-28613]

Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR), this provides the public notice that by a letter dated June 18, 
2018, the San Francisco Bay Railroad (SFBR), formerly doing business as 
LB Railco, has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for 
a renewal of a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the 
Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 223, 
Safety glazing standards--locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses. FRA 
assigned the petition docket number FRA-2007-28613.
    Specifically, SFBR requests relief for SFBR No. 23, an Alco S-2 
diesel electric switcher locomotive built in 1945. The locomotive has 
its original glass in the cab, consisting of 13 separate windows. SFBR 
23 has been operating for the past 73 years in and around the same area 
of San Francisco, and the glass has remained intact without damage. 
SFBR maintains 5 miles of Class 1 track with a maximum allowable speed 
of 10 miles per hour.
    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 Department of Transportation's 
Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. 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.

writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for 
their request.
