November 9, 2015: Petition for Modification of Designated Repair Locations

BNSF Railway Company has petitioned the FRA to make some changes to its current list of designated locations for brake system repairs. These designated areas are listed as “nearest location where the needed repairs can be effectuated” for freight cars with air brake systems or components that become defective en route. The list has not been updated in several years. Since the previous update there have been several changes to accessibility, infrastructure, staffing and safety.
FRA will be accepting comments from interested parties until December 9, 2015.
