Can anyone provide their interpretation on NFPA 130's applicability on equipment mounted outside of railcars or equipment connecting railcars like coupler etc.. Table 8.4.1 doesn't define that category separately and I can't find specific sections in the rest of the standard discussing outside car mounted equipment.
For a 1211 Halon fire extinguisher, when a hydrostatic test is performed concurrently with the 6 year maintenance, is only the silver label in 49 CFR 180.213 required, or is a 2" x 3.5" label documenting the 6 year maintenance also required as well?

You should refer to NFPA 10 the section that refers to ITM of Halon 1211 fire extinguishers 6 year and hydrostatic testing.

Kind of a quick reference guide of the…(Show moreShow less)
I know in 101, 13 and 72 whenever there is a change or new text the section has a vertical line next to it. I'm not sure if this is done in all the NFPA codes and standards or when it started. In the past I've taken a 101 updates class and they've passed out a summary document of changes. Not sure if those are available to the masses?

Thanks! I will look into the NEC sections referenced. From my review there is a need to clarify this particular question. I struggle with compromissing when it comes to life safety systems no matter what the occupancy and the various codes are not cut and dry for this particular item. As for the "specification book" we reference that all…
