Company LLC (KCTL), upon KCTL's becoming a Class III rail carrier.
    This transaction is related to STB Finance Docket No. 34830, Kansas 
City Transportation Company LLC--Lease and Assignment of Lease 
Exemption--Kansas City Terminal Railway Company and Kaw River Railroad, 
Inc.,\1\ wherein KCTL: (1) seeks to acquire by lease from KCT 
approximately 25.73 miles of rail line in the Kansas City Terminal 
District in Jackson County, MO, and Wyandotte County, KS; and (2) seeks 
to acquire by assignment from Kaw River Railroad, Inc. (KRR) the 
operating and lease rights over all tracks owned by KCT which are

    The transaction was expected to be consummated on March 1, 2006, 
the effective date of the exemption (7 days after the exemption was 
filed).
    KCT states that this is an intra-corporate family transaction that

operational changes, or a change in the competitive balance with 
carriers outside the corporate family. Therefore, the transaction is 
exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49

    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption

protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does 
not provide for labor protection for transactions under sections 11324 
and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the 
Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of 
the carriers involved are Class III carriers.
    If the notice contains false or misleading information, the 
exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 
U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to 
revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.
