The notice, served and published in the Federal Register on May 16, 2005 (70 FR 25883), covered the agreement by BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) to grant temporary local trackage rights to UP over a BNSF line of railroad between BNSF milepost 11.3 in UP Junction, WA, and BNSF milepost 36.0 near Sprague, WA, a distance of approximately 24.7 miles. Because the temporary trackage rights are ‘‘local’’ rather than ‘‘overhead’’ rights, they did not qualify for the Board’s class exemption for temporary trackage rights at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(8). The trackage rights operations under the exemption were scheduled to begin on May 3, 2005.
