(the Line).2 The line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Code 75652. There are no stations on the Line. According to the petition, there has been no local traffic on the Line since August 2011, and the Line is stub-ended and therefore not capable of handling overhead traffic. 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 no later than May 24, 2013. Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an abandonment, interim trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate. Similarly, no environmental or historic 1 On January 18, 2013, RCRRD filed a petition for exemption to abandon the Line. See Rusk Cnty. Rural Rail Dist.—Aban.
