ABSTRACT: This report identified, collected, and summarized relevant international codes, standards, and regulations with potential applicability to the use of natural gas as a locomotive fuel. Few international or country-specific codes, standards, and regulations specifically written for natural gas fueled locomotives and tender cars were found, so the search was expanded to include natural gas as a transportation fuel. The inquiry yielded 181 documents primarily from countries that were reviewed as part of this project.
