Abstract
This document details the scope, context, and breadth of work conducted in the development of the final noise emission regulation for four railyard sources: active retarders, locomotive load cell test stands, car coupling, and switched locomotives. The Background Document discusses the physical and economic characteristics of the railroad industry, railroad equipment and facilities, baseline noise levels of railroad yard noise sources, 'best available technology' to reduce noise emissions from railyard noise sources, results of the railroad yard noise propagation model and potential health and welfare benefits associated with various noise control measures, the costs attendant to noise control methods, and comments submitted to the docket.
