ABSTRACT: An inspection form is described to aid Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) inspectors when inspecting tank car manufacturing and repair facilities, when examining newly constructed tank cars, or when inspecting tank cars which have been repaired or retested. Instructions and background information are provided for entering data on the form. Background information is given by quotations from two documents which govern the design, construction and repair of the railroad tank cars: the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 49, Transportation, and the Specifications for the Operations and Maintenance Department, Association of American Railroads. The intent of the inspection form is to emphasize those items which are covered by federal regulations given in the CFR since the principal role requirements would have been satisfied.
