Download as PDF 60600 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 200 / Tuesday, October 18, 2005 / Notices main track and sidings, between Saginaw Terminal, milepost CC 0.0, near Saginaw, Michigan and Mount Morris, Michigan, milepost CC 26.2, on the CSXT Chicago Division, Saginaw Subdivision. The proposal is that the uses of the existing signal system be waived upon startup by SBS. The signal aspects are to be covered and all poweroperated switches disconnected and converted to hand operation; the wayside signals will be subsequently retired and removed as soon as possible after the acquisition by SBS. The proposed method of operation is by TrackAcess, Track Warrant Control, with a maximum authorized speed of 25 mph; all highway-rail grade crossing warning systems will be retained. The reason given for the proposed changes is that the current traffic density and SBS operating method do not warrant retention of the signal system. Any interested party desiring to protest the granting of an application shall set forth specifically the grounds upon which the protest is made, and include a concise statement of the interest of the party in the proceeding. Additionally, one copy of the protest shall be furnished to the applicant at the address listed above.
