Any documentation in NLR’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad— Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). By issuance of this notice, the Board is instituting an exemption proceeding pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 10502(b). A final decision will be issued by June 21, 2011. Any offer of financial assistance (OFA) under 49 CFR 1152.27(b)(2) to subsidize continued rail service will be due no later than 10 days after service of a decision granting the petition for exemption. Each offer must be accompanied by a $1,500 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).3 All filings in response to this notice must refer to Docket No. AB 1011 (SubNo. 1X) and must be sent to: (1) Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001, and (2) Karl Morell, Ball Janik LLP, 1455 F Street, NW., Suite 225, Washington, DC 20005.

N. Lines Ry.—Lease and Operation Exemption—Burlington N. and Santa Fe Ry., FD 34627 (STB served Jan. 6, 2005). 2 This proceeding is related to a petition for exemption filed in BNSF Railway Company— Abandonment Exemption—in Stearns County, Minn., AB 6 (Sub-No. 472X). There, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 10502(b), the Board served and published a notice in the Federal Register on February 18, 2011 (76 FR 9,634), instituting a proceeding in which BNSF is seeking an exemption to abandon the Line. 3 Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate.
