The fourth quarter report for 2014 was due within 90 days of January 15, 2015; the first quarter report for 2015 was due within 90 days of April 15, 2015; and the second quarter report for 2015 was due within 90 days of July 15, 2015. Pursuant to 49 CFR 107.121, PHMSA’s Associate Administrator may modify, suspend or terminate a special permit or grant of party status, as appropriate, on finding that the holder or party knowingly has violated the terms of the special permit or an applicable requirement of this chapter in a manner demonstrating the holder or party is not fit to conduct the activity authorized by the special permit. DelMed Inc.’s failure to file the reports required by the terms of DOT–SP 8308 constitutes a violation of the terms of the special permit. On September 11, 2015 PHMSA sent a letter proposing suspension of DOT–SP 8308, and offering Del-Med, Inc. an opportunity to respond within 30 days and show cause why the proposed action should not be taken. The US Postal Service was unable to deliver the letter. PHMSA’s Office of Hazardous Materials Safety, Field Operations, attempted an inspection at the Edison, New Jersey facility and determined that Del-Med, Inc. is no longer active at that location. On October 21, 2015, PHMSA suspended Del-Med’s status as a grantee to DOT– SP 8308 until such time that they can provide up-to-date quarterly reports and demonstrate that they are in compliance with the requirements of the special permit. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Issued in Washington, DC, on November 2, 2015.

This trackage, which is known as the Willcox Yard, is located at UPRR milepost 1074 in Willcox, Ariz. (the Line). SPSR states that it has operated the Line pursuant to a lease entered into between SPSR and UPRR dated June 29, 2005 (the Initial Willcox Lease). According to SPSR, the Initial Willcox Lease expired on November 1, 2015. SPSR states that it has entered into a new lease with UPRR providing for SPSR’s continued operation of the Line for a term of five years beginning on or about November 1, 2015 (the New Willcox Lease).1 The parties may consummate the transaction on or after November 22, 2015, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed).2 SPSR certifies that, as a result of this transaction, its projected revenues will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million. SPSR states that the lease contains no interchange commitment between the parties. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the 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 revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than November 13, 2015 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 1 In addition to invoking the class exemption for the New Willcox Lease, SPSR is asking the Board to grant retroactive authority for the Initial Willcox Lease. However, the class exemption invoked by SPSR does not provide for retroactive effectiveness. 2 Because SPSR amended its verified notice of exemption on October 23, 2015, that date is the official filing date and the basis for all subsequent dates.

SteelRiver Infrastructure Fund North America LP; SteelRiver Devco 
Holdings LLC; and SR Transportation Holdings LLC--Continuance in 
Control Exemption--West Belt Railway LLC

    SteelRiver Infrastructure Fund North America LP (SteelRiver), 
SteelRiver Devco Holdings LLC (Devco), and SR Transportation Holdings 
LLC (SRTH) (collectively, Applicants), all noncarriers, have jointly 
filed a verified notice of exemption pursuant to 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to 
continue in control of West Belt Railway LLC (WBRY), upon WBRY's 
becoming a Class III rail carrier.
    This transaction is related to a concurrently filed verified notice 
of exemption in West Belt Railway--Lease & Operation Exemption 
Including Interchange Commitment--Terminal Railroad Association of St. 
Louis, Docket No. FD 35972, in which WBRY seeks Board approval to lease 
from Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis, and to operate, 
approximately 9.66 miles of rail line consisting of the following two 
segments: (1) The West Belt Industry Lead (WBIL), from milepost 1.07 at 
Adelaide Avenue to the end of the track at milepost 9.54; and (2) the 
Central Belt Industrial Lead, from the point of connection with the 
WBIL at milepost 9.54 to the end of the track, all located in the City 
of St. Louis, St. Louis County, Mo.
    This transaction may be consummated on November 21, 2015, the 
effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice of 
exemption was filed).

[[Page 68900]]

    WBRY is owned by Devco. Devco is owned by SteelRiver. Devco and 
SRTH do not control any carriers. SteelRiver is owned by a diverse 
group of U.S. and foreign pension funds, insurance companies, and other 
investors. SteelRiver controls PRC Funding LLC, a noncarrier, which 
controls Patriot Funding LLC, a noncarrier, which controls PRC Holdings 
LLC, a noncarrier, which controls PRC Midco LLC, a noncarrier, which 
controls Patriot Rail Company LLC, (Patriot), a noncarrier. Patriot 
controls 13 Class III railroads. For a complete list of these rail 
carriers, and the states in which they operate, see the notice of 
exemption filed on October 22, 2015, in this proceeding. The notice is 
available on the Board's Web site at WWW.STB.DOT.GOV. The notice 
therefore seeks exemption for Devco and SRTH to continue in control of 
WBRY, and for SteelRiver to continue indirect control of WBRY when WBRY 
becomes a Class III rail carrier.
    Applicants state that: (1) WBRY does not connect with any of the 
rail carriers controlled by Patriot; (2) the proposed transaction is 
not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect 
WBRY with each other or with any rail carriers controlled by Patriot; 
and (3) the proposed transaction does not involve a Class I rail 
carrier. The proposed transaction is therefore exempt from the prior 
approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323 pursuant to 49 CFR 
1180.2(d)(2).
    Applicants state that the proposed transaction is intended to 
promote the investment objectives of Applicants and to improve the 
efficiency, financial strength, and ability of WBRY to meet the needs 
of shippers.
    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption 
authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to 
protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does 
not provide for labor protection for transactions under Sec. Sec.  
11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, 
the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all 
of the carriers involved are Class III carriers.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the 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 revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the 
exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed by November 13, 2015 (at 
least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. 
FD 35973 must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each 
pleading must be served on: Thomas F. McFarland, Thomas F. McFarland,
