(at or about milepost 104.84 on the Mattawamkeag Subdivision of the Eastern Maine Railway (EMR)), including MMA’s Brownville Junction Yard.

The State has chosen a new operator for the 233-mile line, MNRC, and, as part of the State’s agreement to acquire the line, MMA has agreed to grant these trackage rights so that MNRC can access directly EMR to the south once MNRC begins to operate the line. MNRC plans to file a modified certificate under 49 CFR 1150.22 for Board authority to operate the 233-mile line.2 The transaction is expected to be consummated on or after June 19, 2011 (30 days after the exemption was filed), unless otherwise ordered by the Board.
