FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alyson Grunder, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Department of State. BILLING CODE 4710–05–P Jkt 241001 On December 29, 2016, Dakota Southern Railway Company (DSRC), a Class III rail carrier, filed a notice for a modified certificate of public convenience and necessity, pursuant to 49 CFR pt. 1150 subpart C—Modified Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, to lease and operate approximately 54.5 miles of rail line (the Line) owned by the State of South Dakota (the State). The Line is located between MP 0.0 (also known as Engineer’s Survey Station Number 00+00) at the intersection of the North Sioux City to Mitchell line and extending in a westerly direction to a point of termination at MP 54.51 (also known as Engineer’s Survey Station Number 1707+17), in and through the Counties of Yankton, Bon Homme, and Charles Mix, S.D. DSRC states that the entire rail line from Napa, S.D. (MP 0.0) to Platte, S.D. (MP 83.3), which includes the Line, was authorized for abandonment in 1980 by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois following the issuance of a report by the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) recommending abandonment. See In re Chi., Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pac. R.R., No 77 B 8999 (N.D. Ill. June 2, 1980, Order 342A); Richard B. Ogilvie, Tr. of the Prop. of Chi., Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pac. R.R.—Aban.—in S.D., Iowa & Neb., AB–7 (Sub-No. 88) (ICC served May 14, 1980). According to DSRC, although authorized for abandonment, the entire line was not abandoned but instead acquired by the State of South Dakota in 1980. DSRC states that, since 1980, the entire line, or segments thereof, have been leased and subleased to various entities, and various entities have held ICC- or STB-authorized operating rights over the entire line or segments thereof. DSRC further states that, in 2007, the State railbanked the segment between Ravinia, S.D. (MP 54.4) 2 and Platte, S.D. 1 The verified notice states that the Line, or service on it, will terminate at MP 54.4 (DSRC Notice 3, 5) and MP 54.5 (DSRC Notice 1), while the lease agreement between DSRC and the State specifies that service will terminate at MP 54.5. (DSRC Notice Ex. C at ¶ A.) 2 The segment of line railbanked by the State begins at MP 54.5, not MP 54.4 as stated by DSRC in its filing. See S.D. Ry.—Notice of Interim Trail Use & Termination of Modified Rail Certificate, FD 31874, slip op. at 1 (STB served July 17, 2007).
