Decatur Central Railroad, L.L.C. (DC), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to assume operations of a rail line located between milepost 14.22 in Cisco, Piatt 18 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Jan 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 County, Ill., and milepost 27.63 (Green’s Switch) near Decatur, Macon County, Ill., a distance of approximately 13 miles (the Line). The Line is currently leased to and operated by Decatur Junction Railway Co. (DJRC), which consents to the proposed change in operators. DC will become a rail carrier as a result of this transaction. DC describes itself as a joint venture between OmniTRAX Holdings Combined, Inc. and Topflight Grain Cooperative, Inc., which each own 50% of DC. DJRC has agreed to relinquish to DC, and DC has agreed to assume, the exclusive common carrier obligation over the Line. DC states that the agreement by which it will assume operations does not contain any provision that prohibits DC from interchanging traffic with a third party or limits DC’s ability to interchange traffic with a third party railroad. DC certifies that the proposed transaction will not result in DC’s becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier. DC will become a Class III carrier upon consummation of the proposed transaction, but the projected annual revenue of DC will not exceed $5 million. Under 49 CFR 1150.32(b), a change in operator requires that notice be given to shippers. DC certifies that it has provided notice of the proposed change in operator to the only shipper on the Line. The earliest this transaction can be consummated is January 21, 2017, the effective date of the exemption.1 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 for stay must be filed no later than January 13, 2017 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36080, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on Karl Morell, Karl Morell & Associates, Suite 225, 655 Fifteenth Street NW., Washington, DC 20005. 1 DC filed its verified notice of exemption on December 8, 2016, and supplemented it by letter filed on December 22, 2016. The date of DC’s supplement will be considered the filing date for purposes of calculating the effective date of the exemption.

SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

[Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 769X)]


CSX Transportation, Inc.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
Boone County, W. Va.

    CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT), filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR pt. 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
9.9-mile rail line on CSXT's Southern Region, Florence Division, Seth 
Subdivision, between milepost CLN 0.3 and milepost CLN 10.2 in Boone 
County, W. Va. (the Line). The Line traverses United States Postal 
Service Zip Code 25181. There is one station on the Line, Prenter, 
located at milepost CLN 10 (FSAC 82243/OPSL 64790).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ CSXT states that the Prenter station can be closed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CSXT has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the 
Line for at least two years; (2) because the Line is not a through 
route, no overhead traffic has operated, and, therefore, none needs to 
be rerouted over other lines; (3) 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 is pending either with the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or 
with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of 
complainant within the two-year period; and (4) 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 of service 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.

[[Page 1781]]

    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 be effective on February 7, 2017, 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) \2\ must be 
filed by January 13, 2017.\3\ Petitions to reopen must be filed by 
January 26, 2017, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street 
SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,700. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \3\ 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 
CSXT's representative: Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. 
Gitomer, LLC, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio.
    Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at 
``WWW.STB.GOV.''

    Decided: January 3, 2017.

    By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of 
Proceedings.
