HC Railroad states that there are no shippers on the Line other than Morristown. In addition to an exemption from the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 10903, HC Railroad seeks an exemption from 49 U.S.C. 10904 (offer of financial assistance (OFA) procedures) and 49 U.S.C. 10905 (public use conditions) as it intends to leave the track in place for continued access by its affiliate, Morristown, and to serve any hypothetical future industries through private contract. HC Railroad states that there has been no actual or need for common carrier rail service since it acquired the Line and that the abandonment of its common carrier obligation will facilitate private use of the track. HC Railroad’s request for exemption from § 10904 and § 10905 will be addressed in the final decision. HC Railroad states that the Line does not contain federally granted rights-ofway. Any documentation in HC Railroad’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. HC Railroad states that there are no paid railroad employees.
