It is ordered that the Rules and Instructions for the Inspection and Testing of Locomotive Boilers and their Appurtenances prescribed by General Order No. 473, dated May 22, 1929, be, and they are hereby, amended by striking out Rule 37 thereof and substituting therefor the following:

Injectors and Feed Water Pumps

(37) All steam locomotives covered by these rules shall be equipped with two separate boiler feed water devices; each device must be of sufficient capacity to supply the boiler under all .operating conditions.

Injectors, feed water pumps and all feed water appliances, including boiler checks, delivery pipes, feed water pipes, gauges, squirt hose and fittings, tank hose and tank valves must be maintained in good operating condition, free from scale, foreign substances or leaks that would obstruct the flow of water.

Before being despatched from terminals where locomotives are maintained, or from stations or terminals where the engine crews of through trains are changed, injectors and feed water pumps must be tested separately and it must be known that each appliance is in a proper condition to supply the boiler requirements.
