Pursuant to a written trackage rights agreement entered into between Chicago Central & Pacific Railroad Company (CCP) and Wisconsin Central Ltd. (WCL) on April 16, 2009,1 CCP has agreed to grant WCL nonexclusive overhead and interchange trackage rights between CCP’s connection with the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railway Company (EJ&E) at or near CCP’s milepost 35.7 at Munger, IL, and CCP’s connection with The Belt Railway Company of Chicago and the Illinois Central Railroad Company at or near CCP’s milepost 8.3 (Belt Crossing) at Chicago, IL, on CCP’s Freeport Subdivision, a distance of approximately 27.4 miles, all in the State of Illinois.2 The transaction is scheduled to be consummated on or about May 23, 2009, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption is filed). The purpose of the trackage rights is to enable WCL to efficiently handle overhead and interchange freight movements between Munger and Belt Crossing at Chicago. The transaction also extends to all industry spurs, connecting tracks and sidings now existent or hereafter constructed along the tracks to be used here, and right-ofway for the tracks to be used here, signals, interlocking devices and plants, telegraph and telephone lines, and other appurtenances necessary to the use of those tracks. Under the trackage rights 1 A redacted version of the trackage rights agreement between CCP and WCL was filed with the notice of exemption. The full version of the agreement, as required by 49 CFR 1180.6(a)(7)(ii), was concurrently filed under seal along with a motion for protective order. The motion is being addressed in a separate decision. 2 The Board recently approved the acquisition of control by Canadian National Railway Company and Grand Trunk Corporation (collectively, CN) of EJ&E West Company (EJ&EW), a wholly owned, noncarrier subsidiary of EJ&E, with EJ&EW acquiring certain land and rail line assets from EJ&E, including EJ&E’s name, and becoming a rail carrier prior to CN acquiring control of it. See Canadian National Railway Company and Grand Trunk Corporation—Control—EJ&E West Company, STB Finance Docket No. 35087, (STB served Dec. 24, 2008). WCL states that, during recent exercises to implement EJ&E into CN’s operations around the Chicago area, it was determined that the rights documented in this trackage rights agreement were established several years ago, implementing agreements were negotiated and executed with the affected unions, and operations were commenced. According to WCL, this filing is being made to assure that all necessary Board authorization has been secured.

Description: This submission covers an existing regulation and involves no change to the regulation or to the information collection requirements. The OCC requests only that OMB extend its approval of the information collection. The information collection requirements in 12 CFR part 1 are as follows: Under 12 CFR 1.3(h)(2), a national bank may request an OCC determination that it may invest in an entity that is exempt from registration under section 3(c)(1) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 1 if the portfolio of the entity consists exclusively of assets that a national bank may purchase and sell for its own account. The OCC uses the information contained in the request as a basis for determining that the bank’s investment is consistent with its investment authority under applicable law and does not pose unacceptable risk. Under 12 CFR 1.7(b), a national bank may request OCC approval to extend the five-year holding period of securities held in satisfaction of debts previously contracted (DPC) for up to an additional five years. The bank must provide a clearly convincing demonstration of why any additional holding period is needed. The OCC uses the information in the request to ensure, on a case-bycase basis, that the bank’s purpose in retaining the securities is not speculative and that the bank’s reasons for requesting the extension are adequate, and to evaluate the risks to the bank of extending the holding period, including potential effects on bank safety and soundness. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 25. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 25. 1 15 U.S.C. 80a–3(c)(1). E:\FR\FM\08MYN1.SGM 08MYN1
