CSX seeks approval of the discontinuance of the signal system, control point (CP) Rule–511, and traffic control (TC) Rule–510 on the Plymouth Subdivision, Chicago Division, Plymouth, MI. CSX proposes to discontinue CP–511 and TC–510 Rules currently in effect on portions of track between CP Beck Road, Milepost (MP) CH27.0, and CP Seymour, MP CH148.17, and operate under track warrant control D 505 Rules. Signals will be removed and all power-operated switches will be converted to hand operation. The CP– 511 Rule will remain in effect at CP Ann Pere, MP CH52.8.
