Partial Revocation of Exemption. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Board, under 49 U.S.C. 10502, revokes the class exemption as it pertains to the modified trackage rights described in STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 8) 1 to permit the mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 1 On December 21, 2007, Union Pacific Railway Company (UP) concurrently filed a verified notice of exemption under the Board’s class exemption procedures at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). The notice covered the agreement by BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) to extend the expiration date of the local trackage rights granted to UP over BNSF’s line of railroad between BNSF milepost 579.3 near Mill Creek, OK, and BNSF milepost 631.1 near Joe Junction, TX, a distance of approximately 51 miles. UP submits that the trackage rights are only temporary rights, but, because they are ‘‘local’’ rather than ‘‘overhead’’ rights, they do not qualify for the Board’s class exemption for temporary trackage rights under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(8). See Union Pacific Railroad Company—Temporary Trackage Rights Exemption—BNSF Railway Company, STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 8) (STB served Jan. 4, 2008). VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:44 Mar 19, 2008 Jkt 214001 trackage rights to expire on or about December 31, 2008, in accordance with the agreement of the parties,2 subject to the employee protective conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line R. Co.— Abandonment—Goshen, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). 2 The trackage rights were originally granted in Union Pacific Railroad Company—Temporary Trackage Rights Exemption—The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company, STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (STB served Oct. 7, 2004). Subsequently, the parties filed notices of exemption several times based on their agreements to extend expiration dates of the same trackage rights. See STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 2) (served February 11, 2005); STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 4) (served March 3, 2006); and STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 6) (served January 12, 2007). Because the original and subsequent trackage rights notices were filed under the class exemption at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7), under which trackage rights normally remain effective indefinitely, in each instance the Board granted partial revocation of the class exemption to permit the authorized trackage rights to expire. See STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 1) (decision served November 24, 2004); STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 3) (decision served March 25, 2005); STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 5) (decision served March 23, 2006); and STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 7) (decision served March 13, 2007). At the time of the extension authorized in STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub– No. 6), the parties anticipated that the authority to allow the rights to expire would be exercised by December 31, 2007. However, the parties filed on December 21, 2007 in STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 8) their most recent notice of exemption so that the trackage rights could be extended to December 31, 2008, and in STB Finance Docket No. 34554 (Sub–No. 9) their latest petition to partially revoke the class exemption to permit expiration, which we are addressing here. PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This exemption is effective on April 19, 2008. Petitions to stay must be filed by March 31, 2008. Petitions to reopen must be filed by April 9, 2008.
