NOTE: Ex Parte No. 38, 28 F.R. 13400, Dec. 11, 1963, ordered, "That from and after February 1, 1964, except as otherwise specified, the rules and instructions for the inspection and testing of locomotives propelled by other than steam power, together with cuts, tables, drawings and forms, approved by I.C.C. order of December 14, 1925, shall be effective, and shall be observed by each and every common carrier subject to the act of Congress aforesaid as minimum requirements, except that with respect to the electric locomotives, built prior to 1926, used on the lines of the Iowa Terminal Railroad Company (acquired the Mason City and Clear Lake Railroad Company) the requirements of Rules 223, 225, 226, 227, 238 (d), 239 (b), and 253 (49 CFR Part 91) shall not be effective until further order of this Commission." § 91.201 Locomotive Unit.
(c) Control of units. When locomotive units are coupled in multiple control all parts and components of each unit capable of providing power for propulsion or supplying the retarding effect which will enable the enginemen to con
Interpretation: On locomotive units coupled in multiple control, the parts and components capable of producing power to propel the locomotive or train, the air brakes capable of retarding or stopping the locomotive or train, and the sanders, shall respond to control from the operating compartment.
(d) Slipping or sliding wheel alarms. Means shall be provided whereby alarms and indications of either slipping or sliding driving wheels on any unit in a locomotive used in road service will be shown in the enginemen's compartment of the controlling unit.
Interpretation: This rule does not require both an audible alarm, and a visible indication, but does require that either the one, or the other, must be provided.
The requirements of the rule are satisfied by a device which shows when either slipping or sliding occurs, even though not distinguishing between the one and the other.
CODIFICATION: Paragraphs (c) and (d) were added, 28 F.R. 2218, Apr. 4, 1958, and subsequently amended to read as set forth above, 24 F.R. 476, Jan. 21, 1959.
§ 91.203 Trip or daily inspection.
(a) Each locomotive unit when used in road service (including belt-line, transfer or work-train service) shall be inspected at least once every 24 hours, except locomotive units operated on through runs exceeding 24 hours, may be inspected at the next crew change point immediately beyond the point at which the 24-hour period expires. Each locomotive unit when used exclusively in yard service shall be inspected at least once during each calendar day. A report of the above inspections shall be made on an approved form to the proper representative of the railroad whether such locomotive units need repairs or not. This form shall show the name of the railroad; the initials and number of the unit; the place, date and time of the inspection; the defects disclosed by such inspection; and the signature of the employee making the inspection. If any defects exist which constitute a violation of the Locomotive Inspection Act, or any Interstate Commerce Commission rules and regulations thereunder, such defects shall be repaired before the unit is again used and proper notation made on the report to indicate that such repairs have been made. This report shall be approved by the designated representative
