Maybe this will help. The periodic inspection requirements build on each other. For example, a 92 service day inspection will include everything that is listed in addition to all the requirements of a 31 service day inspection. An annual will include what is listed in addition to all the requirements of a 31 and 92 service day inspection, and so on. Most of the steam locomotives in the US see 15 years before they will see 1492 service days. The D&S is an exception and most of their locomotives are starting to hit 1472 service days after about 11-13 years. At a minimum, if a steam locomotive is used during the year, it will recieve an annual inspction, regardless of the amount of service days.
