September 2, 2015: BNSF Submits Petition for Approval of Product Safety Plan

BNSF Railway petitioned the FRA for approval of its Product Safety Plan (PSP) for ElectroBlox Wayside Interface Unit that is designed to meet the requirements listed in the 49 CFR part 236, subpart H, Standards for Processor Based Signal and Train Control System. BNSF Railway has said that the ElectroBlox system reliably executes the functions of an interoperable Positive Train Control wayside component.
A copy of the petition is available for review at www.regulations.gov and at the US DOT’s Docket Operations Facility. While the FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing, interested parties are invited to submit written reviews, data or comments.
