    Saginaw Bay Southern Railway Company (SBS), a Class III rail 
carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 
to acquire from CSX Transportation, Inc. its contractual right to 
operate, via trackage rights, over approximately 6.84 miles of rail 
line owned by Huron & Eastern Railway Company, Inc. (HESR) in Saginaw 
County, MI, extending from a point 440 feet northeast of GTW milepost

the authority sought here. See Saginaw Bay Southern Railway 
Company--Acquisition and Operation Exemption--Rail line of CSX

5, 2006). SBS had inadvertently failed to include what would have 
been a grant of incidental trackage rights to operate over HESR's 
line in its notice of exemption filed on September 1, 2005, and thus 
did not have Board authority to operate over the subject line. See

No. 34729 (STB served and published in the Federal Register on Sept.

    SBS certifies that its projected revenues as a result of this 
transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I 
rail carrier. SBS further certifies that its projected annual revenues 
are expected to exceed $5 million. SBS has included a request in its 
notice filed on May 26, 2006, for waiver of the requirements of 49 CFR 
1150.42(e) to permit the exemption to become effective without 
providing the 60-day advance notice. Finding no adverse impact on the 
affected employees, by decision served on June 19, 2006, the Board has 
granted SBS's request and waived the requirements of 49 CFR 
1150.42(e).\2\ The waiver decision has the effect of making the

    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
