Fuel Tank Integrity on Non Passenger Carrying Locomotives


This standard establishes requirements, and provides guidance, for establishing a minimum level of integrity for all diesel fuel containment systems designed to accept, store, and feed fuel to primary diesel engines installed on passenger rail equipment. This includes, diesel electric and diesel electric dual mode locomotives (i.e. electrical and diesel electric compatible equipment) used in passenger revenue service. Minimum structural integrity, vehicle integration, and construction requirements applied to the fuel containment systems are covered. Specific exceptions are stated. This standard does not apply to fuel transfer, feed, or fuel tender
