h. Securing Equipment.
(1) Locomotives. If locomotives are to be spotted for overnight layover, observe the
following:
Apply the locomotive hand brake.
Place the reverser handle in neutral position, remove the reverser handle, place the
reverser handle under supervised control, and shut down engine using
manufacturers' procedures.
Place all switches on the controller panel in the off position.
Place all circuit breakers and switches on the circuit breaker panel and the engine
control panel in the off position and open all knife switches.
Cover exhaust stacks if not equipped with external spark arrestors or flappers.
Drain engine, ensure antifreeze protection, and follow manufacturers'
recommendation if freezing weather is probable.
Stored engines shall be turned over at least once a month and (if possible) started and run
long enough to reach engine operating temperature for at least 30 minutes.
(2) Railcars. Railcars that are stored require that the various inspection and
maintenance dates be honored. Railcars with friction bearings shall be moved a minimum of five
car lengths at least every 45 days to prevent journal pitting. If the cars are stored in an area
subject to vandalism, the brass journals shall be checked prior to any movement.
