Federal Railroad Administration

[Docket Number FRA-2013-0010]

Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR), this document provides the public notice that by a document 
dated January 31, 2013, the Chessie Logistics Company LLC (CLCY), a 
Class III railroad, has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration 
(FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal 
railroad safety regulations. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number 
    Specifically, CLCY has petitioned for a waiver of compliance from 
the requirements of: 49 CFR Sections 223.11, Requirements for existing 
locomotives; 231.30, Locomotives used in switching service; 229.47, 
Emergency brake valve; 229.115, Slip/slide alarms; 229.125, Headlights 
and auxiliary lights; 224.105, Sheeting dimensions and quantity; 
224.106, Location of retroreflective sheeting; 229.129, Locomotive 
horn; 229.131, Sanders; and 229.135, Event recorders. CLCY seeks this 
waiver for its 5TM track mobile, CLCY 106. CLCY employs the track 
mobile for yard and industry switching, which is confined to CLCY's 
tracks within the J. Emil Anderson & Son, Inc. Industrial Park, located 
in Melrose Park, Cook County, IL. CLCY operates on 1.06 miles of track 
and 431 feet of siding. It interchanges railcars with the Indiana 
Harbor Belt Railroad on a transfer track that is west of Mannheim Road. 
CLCY is the sole rail operator on this line and provides rail service 
to two shippers. The 5TM track mobile switches, shoves, and pulls all 
railcars with their train air brakes cut in to maintain control of all 
switching movements. The track mobile will always operate at speeds not 
to exceed 10 mph. CLCY will not use a locomotive for these switching
