HVRM requests an extension of an existing waiver providing relief from certain parts of 49 CFR part 219, specifically, reasonable cause testing, random testing, and the requirement to have voluntary referral and co-worker report policies. HVRM also wishes to update the territory that this waiver extension should apply to. The updated stations and mileposts are as follows: • North Judson at Milepost (MP) 212.7 (end of track) to Malden at MP 230.8 (end of track); • LaCrosse at MP 0.5 to Wellsboro (Union Mills) at MP 15.3; • Inclusive of Wye connection at MP 222.8 and MP 0.5 LaCrosse.

The railroad states that passenger trains will not operate on any excepted track. Occasional excursions beyond LaCrosse westward to Malden and LaCrosse north to Wellsboro (Union Mills) would be five times or less annually, with communication and coordination with the shortline operator. The community of Hanna at MP 9.1 holds an annual town festival and requests HVRM excursion train operations during the festival weekend which is usually held in August. The community of Union Mills holds an annual festival, the community of Malden holds an event, and that segment of track offers some picnic trains and agricultural excursions to accompany the community events.
