that it had consummated the discontinuance of the Line.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CSXT has certified that: (1) No local freight traffic has moved

through route, no overhead traffic has operated; and, therefore, none 
needs to be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by

entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service 
over the Line is either pending with the Surface Transportation Board

by the abandonment shall be protected under Oregon Short Line

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) has been received, this exemption will be

environmental issues (whether raised by a party or by the Board's 
Office of Environmental Analysis (OEA) in its independent 
investigation) cannot be made before the exemption's effective date. 
See Exemption of Out-of-Serv. Rail Lines, 5 I.C.C. 2d 377 (1989).
