Sunshine Act Meetings; Unified Carrier Registration Plan Board of Directors, 21719 [2010-9666]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 79 / Monday, April 26, 2010 / Notices sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES a significantly different story than CN’s reports. HDR’s report explains that it discovered that many of the highway/ rail at-grade crossings on the former EJ&E line acquired by CN are equipped with ‘‘Radio Transmission Units,’’ also known as RTUs, which record when crossing gates are down. When the gate down time exceeds 10 minutes, the RTU sends a time-stamped fax to the train dispatcher. When the crossing gate is raised, the RTU sends another fax to the train dispatcher indicating that the gate has been raised, along with the time that the crossing gate has gone up. The total elapsed time is then calculated and archived. According to HDR’s report, the RTUgenerated data shows 1,457 instances, involving 85 different crossings on the former EJ&E line, where the crossing signal system was activated and the gates were in the down position for periods exceeding 10 minutes in November/December 2009. The 14 instances of street crossing blockages due to stopped trains in CN’s reports for November/December 2009 are included in the RTU-generated data for the same time periods. However, 1,443 street crossing blockages of 10 minutes or more listed in the RTU-generated data are not described in CN’s monthly reports. Consequently, the Board hereby orders CN to appear for a hearing at the Board’s offices on April 28, 2010. At that time, the Board expects CN to VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:56 Apr 23, 2010 Jkt 220001 address why it did not report the existence of this data to the Board earlier as part of its ongoing monitoring responsibilities. HDR representatives also will appear at the hearing to answer Board questions regarding its independent audit that uncovered this RTU data. The hearing will be open for public observation but not for public participation. The general public is invited to file written comments by May 28, 2010, on HDR’s audit and the RTUdata CN will be submitting to the Board. Live Video Streaming Available Via the Internet: A video broadcast of this hearing will be available on the Board’s Web site at http://www.stb.dot.gov, under ‘‘Information Center’’/‘‘Webcast’’/ ‘‘Live Video.’’ This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
