portion of the property commonly known as the ``Orange Industrial 
Track'' in Essex County, N.J., from milepost 8.616 to milepost 9.905 
(the Line). NJ Transit states that, under the proposed transaction, NSR 
would transfer to NJ Transit the real property and railroad fixtures 
associated with the Line. According to NJ Transit, NSR will retain an 
exclusive operating easement to continue to provide freight rail 
service over the Line.\1\

that the transaction does not require authorization from the Board

    NJ Transit states the proposed transaction has been agreed upon 
pursuant to an Exchange Agreement, Quitclaim Deed, Second Operating 
Agreement, and Trackage Rights Agreement by and between NJ Transit and

does not contain any provisions that would limit interchange with a 
third party.
    NJ Transit certifies that, because it will not conduct any rail 
carrier operations on the Line, its projected revenues from freight 
operations will not result in the creation of a Class I or Class II 
carrier.
    NJ Transit states that it expects to consummate the proposed 
transaction at the conclusion of this exemption proceeding. The 
earliest this transaction may be consummated is October 31, 2012, the 
effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption was 
filed).

exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 
U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to
