Post subject:  ASTM F-24 Amusement Park Railroad Standards

Hi all,
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the AP RR Standards, the least expensive way is to become a member of ASTM.
It is only US$75.00/yr. and you get 1 volume of standards included with your membership.
Volume 15.07 "End Use Products" includes the AP RR standards.
This volume also includes all the Amusement Ride Standards and a bunch more.
There are currently 2 standards out there for Amusement Park Railroads:
The track Std F2960-15 and an operations standard F3054-15
The AP RR operations standard also incorporates the current amusement ride operations standard F770. (Meet all the requirements in F770 plus additional listed items directly related to AP railroads.)

All ASTM standards are available for download as a PDF.
(note: ASTM is discontinuing the production of a volume on CD soon - 2018 I think)

On a side note there are several task groups working on different subjects including a AP steam loco maintenance and inspection std.
