Bradford County, PA.
    RBMN certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of 
the transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class 
I rail carrier. However, because its projected annual revenues will 
exceed $5 million, RBMN also has certified to the Board that it has 
complied with the employee notice requirements of 49 CFR 1150.42(e). 
Pursuant to that provision, the exemption may not become effective 
until 60 days from the October 21, 2009 date of certification to the 
Board, which would be December 20, 2009. Thus, while RBMN has indicated 
a proposed consummation date of December 19, 2009, RBMN may not 
consummate the transaction and commence operating the line prior to 
December 20, 2009.
    In its notice, RBMN states that RBMN will interchange traffic with 
Lehigh Railway, LLC. RBMN is unaware of any existing interchange 
commitments and does not contemplate that any will be required as part 
of this transaction.
    Pursuant to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, Public Law 
No. 110-161, Sec.  193, 121 Stat. 1844 (2007), nothing in this decision 
authorizes the following activities at any solid waste rail transfer 
facility: collecting, storing, or transferring solid waste outside of 
its original shipping container; or separating or processing solid 
waste (including baling, crushing, compacting, and shredding). The term 
``solid waste'' is defined in section 1004 of the Solid Waste Disposal 
Act, 42 U.S.C. 6903.
    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 a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the
