The AAR Interchange Rules (Field Manual and Office Manual) detail the rules for the conditions on a rail vehicle that may be repaired, how the repair should be performed, and the allowable charge for the repair. To augment the Manuals, the Arbitration and Rules (ARB) Committee asked TTCI’s Mechanical Inspection Department (MID) to develop online reference videos demonstrating the use of Field Manual Rule 1 Gages.
Current offerings include demonstrations of proper use of gages for trucks, draft system components, and wheels.
When the project is complete, nearly 20 videos will be available, without charge, to the industry.
This gage series is available online: http://www.aar.com/standards/Field_Manual_Gage_Use_Demonstration_Videos.html.
