Central Illinois Railroad Company--Operation Exemption--Rail Line 
of the City of Peoria, IL

    Central Illinois Railroad Company (CIRY), a Class III rail carrier, 
has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to 
operate a short segment of railroad, referred to as ``the 1800-foot 
connection,'' constructed and owned by the City of Peoria, IL (the 
City). CIRY states that it will be operating the segment pursuant to an 
interim agreement with the City which will be replaced by a longer term 
agreement. The connection joins a 1.9-mile segment of track, referred 
to as ``the Western Connection,'' that the City purchased from Union 
Pacific Railroad Company with an 8.29-mile segment, known as the Kellar 
Branch, that the City acquired from the former Chicago, Rock Island & 
Pacific Railroad Company.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The City was granted an exemption to construct the 
connecting track in 2004, and CIRY received authority to operate the 
Kellar Branch (2004) and the Western Connection (2005), but neither 
entity received authority to operate the connecting track at that 
time. By decision served on June 27, 2007, in STB Finance Docket No. 
34753, Central Illinois Railroad Company--Operation Exemption--Rail 
Line of the City of Peoria, IL, CIRY was directed to show cause by 
July 27, 2007, why it should not be required to obtain Board 
authority to operate over the connecting track or to cease 
operations over the trackage. CIRY states it is filing the instant 
exemption in direct response to the Board's June 27 decision.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CIRY certifies that its projected revenues as a result of the 
transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I 
rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million.
    The earliest this transaction may be consummated is the August 23, 
2007 effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption was 
filed).
    If the verified 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. 
Petitions for stay must be filed no later than August 16, 2007 (at 
least 7 days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB 
Finance Docket No. 35069, must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, 395 E. Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a
