See Bay Colony Railroad Corporation— Acquisition and Operation Exemption—CSX Transportation, Inc., as Operator for New York Central Lines, LLC, STB Finance Docket No. 34446 (STB served Jan. 16, 2004). CSXT states that, in this transaction, it will convey the full scope of its ownership interest in the Watuppa Branch to MassDOT, subject to BCLR’s rights and interests and CSXT’s retained easement over the first 0.08 miles of the branch.
