§ 174.115 Loading Division 1.4 (explosive) materials.
(a) Division 1.4 (explosive) materials may be loaded into any closed car in good condition, or into any container car in good condition. Car certificates are not required. Packages of Division 1.4 (explosive) materials must be blocked and braced to prevent their shifting and possible damage due to shifting of other freight during transportation. For methods of recommended loading and bracing see Bureau of Explosives Pamphlet No. 6.
(b) Division 1.4 (explosive) materials may not be transported in a truck body, trailer, or container on a flatcar unless:
(1) The truck body, trailer, or container is closed and tight;
(2) All automatic heating or refrigerating machinery with which the truck body, trailer, or container is equipped is inoperative; and
(3) Packages of Division 1.4 (explosive) materials are blocked and braced within the truck body, trailer, or container to prevent their shifting and possible damage due to shifting of other freight during transportation. Ends, side walls, or doors of the truck body, trailer, or container may not be relied on to prevent shifting of heavy loads. For recommended methods of blocking and bracing see the Intermodal Loading Guide for Products in Closed Trailers and Containers (IBR, see§ 171.7 of this subchapter).
