Partial revocation of exemption. AGENCY: ACTION: Under 49 U.S.C. § 10502, the Board revokes the class exemption as it pertains to the trackage rights described in Docket No. FD 34554 (Sub-No. 16) 1 to permit the trackage rights to expire on or about December 31, 2012, in accordance with the agreement of the parties,2 subject to the employee SUMMARY: 1 In that docket, on August 16, 2012, Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) filed a verified notice of exemption under the Board’s class exemption procedures at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). The notice covered the agreement by BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) to extend to December 31, 2012, the expiration date of the local trackage rights granted to Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) over BNSF’s line of railroad between BNSF mileposts 579.3 near Mill Creek, Okla., and 631.1 near Joe Junction, Tex., a distance of approximately 51 miles. UP submits that, while the trackage rights are only temporary rights, because they are ‘‘local’’ rather than ‘‘overhead’’ rights, they do not qualify for the Board’s class exemption for temporary trackage rights under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(8). See Union Pac. R.R.—Temporary Trackage Rights Exemption—BNSF Ry., FD 34554 (Sub-No. 16) (STB served Aug. 31, 2012). 2 The trackage rights were originally granted in Union Pacific Railroad Company—Temporary Trackage Rights Exemption—The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company, FD 34554 (STB served Oct. 7, 2004). Subsequently, the parties filed several notices of exemption based on their agreements to extend expiration dates of the same trackage rights. See FD 34554 (Sub-No. 2) (STB served Feb. 11, 2005); FD 34554 (Sub-No. 4) (STB served Mar. 3, 2006); FD 34554 (Sub-No. 6) (STB served Jan. 12, 2007); FD 34554 (Sub-No. 8) (STB served Jan. 4, 2008); FD 34554 (Sub-No. 10) (STB served Jan. 8, 2009); FD 34554 (Sub-No. 12) (STB served Dec. 31, 2009); and FD 34554 (Sub-No. 14) (STB served Feb. 11, 2011). Because the original and subsequent trackage rights notices were filed under the class exemption at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7), under which trackage rights normally remain effective indefinitely, in each instance the Board granted partial revocation of the class exemption to permit the authorized trackage rights to expire. See FD 34554 (Sub-No. 1) (STB served Nov. 24, 2004); E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM Continued 14NON1
