    Transport Canada enforces rail safety regulations and conducts research and development in support of improved railroad safety. Transport Canada works closely with the railroad industry through forums such as the Advisory Council on Railway Safety and on various safety issues, including track standards, equipment standards, and transportation. After verifying vehicle insurance, CNG tank should be inspected (customer only need be present if tank is located in the trunk). A CNG equipped vehicle: • Must Comply with the requirements of 49 CFR • The fuel container tank has not exceeded the expiration date. The inspector can complete this inspection requirement through.

    The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) promotes safe and environmentally sound rail transportation. With the responsibility of ensuring railroad safety throughout the nation, the FRA employs safety inspectors to monitor railroad compliance with federally mandated safety standards including track maintenance, inspection standards and operating practices.

Field Guide to Tank Cars is intended to be used by emergency responders and others involved with railroad tank cars.

It provides information on the types, safety systems, stenciling, and markings of tank cars utilized to transport regulated (hazardous materials/dangerous goods). Note: The purpose of this documentation is to provide railroad personnel and emergency response personnel with accurate information about the hazardous materials.

Therefore, keep all current hazardous material documents neat and orderly and ensure that they are. RAILROAD SAFETY INSPECTION PROGRAMS INTRODUCTION Inspection has been conceived by the Federal Railroad Administration, the States, the rail-roads, and their employees as being one of the key components of railroad safety, The theory is that since both empirical and research in-formation exists as to conditions that give rise to.

The DOT tank cars are constructed with a draft sill design. Draft sills incorporate the draft gear behind each coupler that is designed to transfer longitudinal draft and buff (compression) forces throughout the length of a train. The draft sills are attached to steel pads that are attached to the tank.

Certified tank car facilities need additional publications as listed in Rule E. October Refer to M, C-III, Appendix B for required publications. The current MSRP Section C-III is available through the Transportation Technology Center, Inc.
