Utah Southern Railroad Company, LLC--Change in Operators 
Exemption--Iron Bull Railroad Company, LLC

    Utah Southern Railroad Company, LLC (USRC), a noncarrier, has filed 
a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to change operators 
from Iron Bull Railroad Company (IBRC) to USRC on a rail line known as 
the Comstock Subdivision (the line) that extends between milepost 0.1 
at or near Iron Springs, Utah, and milepost 14.7 at or near Iron 
Mountain, Utah, a distance of 14.6 miles in Iron County, Utah. The line 
is leased from Union Pacific Railroad Company by PIC Railroad, LLC 
(PIC) and is operated by USRC pursuant to an operating agreement with 
PIC. This change in operators is exempt under 49 CFR 1150.31(a)(3).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ To qualify for a change of operators exemption, an applicant 
must give notice to shippers on the line. See 49 CFR 1150.32(b). On 
October 26, 2011, USRC filed certification that notice had been 
given to the sole shipper on the line, CML Metals Corporation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In 2006, IBRC filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 
1150.31 for operation of the line pursuant to an operating agreement 
with PIC.\2\ In a letter dated September 30, 2008, USRC notified the 
Board that, effective October 1, 2008, the name of IBRC was being 
changed to USRC. USRC now states, however, that, as of the date of that 
letter, USRC ``had been incorporated, and acquired IBRC's operating 
authority, and operated [the line] as a corporation separate and 
distinct from IBRC.'' Counsel for USRC recently became aware that USRC 
has a corporate existence separate from IBRC and that IBRC's corporate 
existence has been dissolved, and USRC therefore now files this notice 
to obtain the required exemption to change operators of the line.
