According to Railroad, UP owns the connecting trackage at Patrick, but BNSF has trackage rights over UP’s trackage and will be able to interchange traffic with Railroad. Railroad further states that, although the line has been owned and operated by Owners as private track, an agreement has been reached where Owners has agreed to convey the line to its affiliated corporation, Railroad, for operation as a common carrier rail line. Railroad certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of the transaction will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million. The earliest this transaction may be consummated is the March 18, 2007 effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption was filed). 1 According to Railroad, the line does not have mileposts.
