(b) For purposes of the regulations in this subpart the following definitions apply:

(1) A railroad vehicle is a cargo carrying body or tank permanently attached to an underframe and wheels (box car, tank car, etc.) which is loaded, stowed and discharged as a unit. Tank car units shall be handled by "roll-on/rolloff" methods on vessels specially equipped for their securing or as provided in subparagraph (b) (5) of this section.

(2) A highway vehicle is a cargo carrying body or tank permanently attached to the chassis and wheels which is loaded, stowed and discharged as a unit. Tank vehicle units shall be handled by “roll-on/roll-off" methods on vessels specially equipped for their securing or as provided in subparagraph (b) (6) of this section.

(3) A container is defined as a cargocarrying unit which is designed and constructed to transport packaged or dry bulk cargoes. The container is designed to be placed on board a vessel intact, with or without cargo. When used as a land transportation unit it may be integrated with a chassis to form a highway vehicle.

(4) A portable tank is defined as a tank with a capacity in excess of 110 U.S. gallons which is designed and constructed for transporting liquids or compressed gases, equipped with skids, mountings, or other accessories to facilitate handling and securing by mechanical means, and to be lifted on and lifted off the vessel with its contents. The maximum acceptable gross weight for portable tanks is 20,000 pounds. Portable tanks in excess of 20,000 pounds gross weight and other portable tanks not specifically authorized by the regulations of this part may be authorized by the Commandant of the Coast Guard (see $ 146.02-25) provided an equivalent degree of safety can be provided, e.g., by a controlled container-handling system.

(5) A trainship is a vessel other than a railroad car ferry or carfloat designed to transport railroad vehicles. If special loading and discharging gear is provided for the tank cars, which will not add additional stresses to the tank structure, they may be handled by this gear without the loading and discharging limitations of subparagraph (b) (1) of this section being applicable to this vessel.

$ 146.07-1 Applicability and definitions.

Portable tanks having valves or other fittings must have the valves or fittings protected and be so loaded that there will be a minimum likelihood of damage thereto during transportation. Packages marked with storage instructions such as “This side up” or “This end up” shall be so stowed.

(d) Railroad vehicles, highway vehicles, containers and portable tanks equipped with refrigerating or heating equipment using a flammable liquid or gas as fuel, and having such fuel in the fuel tank shall be transported only "On deck”. Such equipment may be operated on board the vessel when the "On deck" stowage is provided. Equipment stowed on deck may be refueled under supervision of a qualified officer of the vessel assigned for such duty who shall ensure that adequate safety precautions are observed. Railroad vehicles, highway vehicles containers and portable tanks having refrigerating or heating equipment operated by internal combustion engines using fuel other than a flammable liquid or gas may be stowed and operated below deck provided that dangerous concentrations of carbon monoxide do not develop. The senior deck officer shall see that tests of the carbon monoxide content of the atmosphere are made as frequently as conditions require. Such tests shall be made in the area in which persons are working, by persons acquainted with the test equipment and procedure. The concentration of carbon monoxide in the holds and intermediate decks where persons are working shall be maintained at not more than 50 parts per million (0.005%) as a time weighted average, and persons shall be removed from the area if the concentration exceeds 75 parts per million (0.0075%). When necessary, a mechanical ventilation system of adequate capacity shall be utilized. The stowage shall be in accordance with the requirements of this part for the particular commodity. If the equipment is secured, and the fuel tank completely drained, the railroad vehicle, container, or portable tank may be stowed in accordance with the requirements of this part and subpart without any further restrictions.
