The Federal Railroad Administration has created two additional proposals for the Freight Equipment Safety Standards. Phase II and Phase III, covering Lubrication of Journal Bearings and Prohibited Equipment respectively, have been issued. The FRA has set Jan. 15, 1973 as the date for submitting comments on the new proposals. The general prohibitions on average cars and those with Duryea underframes would outlaw comparents that include K-type air brakes, tabular axles, cartridge journal bearings, certain specific types of roller bearings, all cost-iron wheels and certain cost steel types, four types of jokes and many specific types of side-frame and bolster castings. The lubrication standards would include stenciling, plain bearing boxes, roller bearings and restenciling.
