VerDate Aug<31>2005 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION SUMMARY: The Board, under 49 U.S.C. 10502, revokes the class exemption as it pertains to the trackage rights described in STB Finance Docket No. 34694 1 to permit the trackage rights to expire on or about December 31, 2005, in accordance with the agreement of the parties, subject to the employee protective conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line R.

Petitions to reopen must be filed by October 12, 2005. An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 34694 (Sub-No. 1) must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423–0001.

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.
