Jewett, PA, a distance of 69.9 miles, in Clarion, Forest, Elk and McKean Counties, PA. The line includes no stations and traverses United States Postal Service Zip Codes 16254, 16235, 16233, 16260, 16239, 16347, 16735, 16734, and 16740. Knox and Kane has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the line for at least 2 years; (2) there is no overhead traffic on the line; (3) no PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54873 formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of complainant within the 2-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.7 (environmental report), 49 CFR 1105.8 (historic report), 49 CFR 1105.11 (transmittal letter), 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. The Board generally does not impose labor protective conditions on a railroad, such as Knox and Kane here, that is abandoning its entire line. See, Northampton and Bath R. Co.— Abandonment, 354 I.C.C. 784 (1978). Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) has been received, this exemption will be effective on November 24, 2009, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues,1 formal expressions of intent to file an OFA under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2),2 and trail use/rail banking requests under 49 CFR 1152.29 must be filed by November 2, 2009.

A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to Knox and Kane’s representative: Andrew P. Goldstein, 2175 K Street, NW., Suite 600, Washington, DC 20037. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Knox and Kane has filed both an environmental report and a historic report that address the effects, if any, of the abandonment on the environment and historic resources. SEA will issue an environmental assessment (EA) by October 30, 2009. Interested persons may obtain a copy of the EA by writing to SEA (Room 1100, Surface 1 The Board will grant a stay if an informed decision on environmental issues (whether raised by a party or by the Board’s Section of Environmental Analysis (SEA) in its independent investigation) cannot be made before the exemption’s effective date. See Exemption of Outof-Service Rail Lines, 5 I.C.C.2d 377 (1989). Any request for a stay should be filed as soon as possible so that the Board may take appropriate action before the exemption’s effective date. 2 Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which currently is set at $1,500. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
