DOCKET NUMBER: 2003-14217
KEYWORDS: Locomotives
ABSTRACT: On August 19, 2003, FRA published an interim final rule making a technical clarification to the locomotive headlight and auxiliary light provisions contained in � 229.125(a) and (d) of title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The purpose of the modification was to codify FRA�s longstanding acceptance of lamps used in locomotive headlights and auxiliary lights. FRA believes that the clarification is consistent with both FRA�s intent when issuing the requirements related to locomotive headlights and auxiliary lights and FRA�s enforcement policies related to those provisions. FRA also believes that the clarification furthers FRA�s goal of facilitating the use of advanced technologies and enhances FRA�s safety enforcement program by recognizing specific types of lamps it considers acceptable for use in headlights and auxiliary lights. This final rule retains the technical clarifications made in the interim final rule with minor changes for consistency and clarity.
