This current compilation of standards established for cars and locomotives by Federal regulation is a successor to the ICC's Safety Appliance Standards, last published in 1946, and to the Power Brake Law pamphlet, issued in 1958. It incorporates requirements for today's rolling stock, including tank cars without underframes, hi-cube box cars and cars of special design.
