Hall—Continuance in Control Exemption—U S Rail Corporation of New Jersey Gabriel D. Hall (Hall), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to continue in control of U S Rail Corporation of New Jersey (U S RCNJ), upon U S RCNJ becoming a Class III rail carrier. This transaction is related to the concurrently filed verified notices of exemption in: (1) STB Finance Docket No. 35310, U S Rail Corporation of New Jersey—Lease Exemption—County of Salem, NJ, wherein U S RCNJ seeks to lease from the County of Salem, NJ, an approximately 17.24 mile rail line between milepost 10.86 in Swedesboro, NJ, and milepost 28.10 in Salem, NJ (the line); and (2) STB Finance Docket No. 35317, U S Rail Corporation—Operation Exemption—U S Rail Corporation of New Jersey, wherein U S Rail Corporation, an affiliate of U S RCNJ, seeks to operate over the line. The transactions are scheduled to be consummated on or after December 12, 2009 (30 days after the notices of exemption were filed). Hall is a noncarrier that currently controls directly or indirectly through equity ownership two rail carriers: USRP and U S Rail Holding, LLC. Mr. Hall states that: (1) The rail line to be acquired by lease does not connect with the lines of any other railroad controlled by Hall; (2) the continuance in control is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect the rail line with any railroads controlled by Hall; and (3) the transaction does not involve a Class I railroad. Therefore, the transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under sections 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62383 a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ U S RCNJ is contracting with its affiliate U S Rail 
Corporation (USRP) to perform the operations on the line, with U S 
RCNJ retaining a residual common carrier obligation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This transaction is related to the concurrently filed verified 
notices of exemption in: (1) STB Finance Docket No. 35317, U S Rail

whereby USRP has filed a verified notice of exemption to operate the
