Exemption--in the City of St. Louis, Mo.

    Norfolk Southern Railway Company (NSR) filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
2.0-mile rail line between mileposts S 3.0 (near Branch Street) and S 
5.0 (near May Street) (the Line), in the City of St. Louis, Mo. The 
Line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Codes 63102 and 63147.
    NSR has certified that: (1) No local or overhead traffic has moved 
over the Line for at least two years and overhead traffic, if there 
were any, could be rerouted over other lines; (2) no formal complaint 
filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local 
government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of 
service over the Line either is pending with the Surface Transportation 
Board or any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of the 
complainant within the two-year period; and (3) the requirements at 49 
CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice 
to governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance shall be protected under Oregon Short Line 
Railroad--Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in 
Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address 
whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a 
petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) to subsidize continued rail service has been 
received, this exemption will become effective on February 6, 2016, 
unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not 
involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file 
an OFA to subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 
\1\ must be filed by January 19, 2016.\2\ Petitions to reopen must be 
filed by January 27, 2016, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.

    \1\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,600. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \2\ Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an 
abandonment, interim trail use/rail banking and public use 
conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be an 
environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does 
not require an environmental review.

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to NSR's 
representative: William A. Mullins, Baker & Miller PLLC, 2401
