MCR also proposes to discontinue trackage rights over a BNSF Railway Company2 rail line between milepost 31.4 at Hambone and milepost 0.0 at Lookout Junction, a distance of approximately 31.4 miles in Siskiyou and Modoc Counties, CA.3 The lines traverse United States Postal Service Zip Codes 96067, 96057, 96013, 96054, and 96056, and include a station at Burney. The lines do not contain federally granted rights-of-way. Any documentation in MCR’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad Co.—Abandonment—Goshen, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). By issuance of this notice, the Board is instituting an exemption proceeding pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 10502(d). A final decision will be issued by October 14, 2005. Any offer of financial assistance (OFA) under 49 CFR 1152.27(b)(2) will be due no later than 10 days after service of a decision granting the petition for exemption. Each OFA must be accompanied by a $1,200 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). All interested persons should be aware that, following abandonment of rail service and salvage of the lines, the lines may be suitable for other public use, including interim trail use. Any request for a public use condition under 49 CFR 1152.28 or for trail use/rail banking under 49 CFR 1152.29 will be due no later than August 4, 2005. Each trail use request must be accompanied by a $200 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(27).4 All filings in response to this notice must refer to STB Docket No. AB–914X and must be sent to: (1) Surface Transportation Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423–0001, and (2) Thomas F. McFarland, 208 South LaSalle Street, Suite 1890, Chicago, IL 60604–1112. Replies to MCR’s petition are due on or before August 4, 2005. Persons seeking further information concerning abandonment or 2 Effective January 20, 2005, the name of ‘‘The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company’’ was changed to ‘‘BNSF Railway Company.’’ 3 The Board issued an exemption for abandonment of the Hambone-Lookout Junction rail line in Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company—Abandonment Exemption—in Modoc and Siskiyou Counties, CA, STB Docket No. AB–6 (Sub-No. 414X) (STB served May 21, 2004). However, an exemption was not sought in that proceeding for discontinuance of MCR’s operations over that line pursuant to trackage rights. 4 For the line where discontinuance rather than an abandonment is being sought, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate.
