to lease and to operate, pursuant to an amendment dated August 31, 
2009, to a lease agreement

[[Page 47856]]

(Agreement) entered into on April 21, 2008, with Central of Georgia 
Railroad Company (CGA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Norfolk Southern 
Railway Company (NSR), approximately 12.5 miles of CGA's rail line 
between milepost E-53-3 at Machen, Jasper County, GA, and milepost E-
65.8 at Newborn, Newton County, GA.
    SQS states that the line connects with CGA and CSX Transportation, 
Inc. SQS believes its Agreement does not include an interchange 
commitment that violates 49 CFR 1150.43(h) (requiring submission of 
complete version of agreement that may limit future interchange with a 
third-party connecting carrier). Nevertheless, SQS has concurrently

after September 30, 2009. The earliest this transaction may be
