(CSX) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval for the discontinuance or modification VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:02 Apr 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 of a signal system. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2015– 0004. Applicant: CSX Transportation, Inc., Mr. Jody Cox, Chief Engineer Communications & Signals, 500 Water Street, Speed Code J–350, Jacksonville, FL 32202. On August 10, 2015, FRA granted conditional approval to CSX’s block signal application under Docket Number FRA–2015–0004, which sought approval of the proposed discontinuance of an automatic block signal (ABS) system between control point (CP) Mitchell, milepost (MP) OOQ 256.0 and CP NE Vernia, MP OOQ 314.6, on the Hoosier Subdivision, Louisville Division, at Mitchell, IN. The conditions of approval were: 1. CSX may retire the signal system in place for a time period not to exceed 2 years from August 10, 2015. 2. Traffic levels are to be tracked to identify any change. 3. Distant approach signals to CP Mitchell and NE Vernia are to be installed. 4. CSX must notify FRA’s regional office when the signal system is retired in place. 5. CSX may request permanent discontinuance of the signal system 6 months prior to the expiration of the 2year period. In the February 10, 2017, letter CSX requests permanent discontinuance of the signal system as defined in Condition 5 of FRA’s August 10, 2015, conditional approval. CSX will comply with Conditions 3 and 4 upon approval of a permanent discontinuance. The reason for the proposed discontinuance is that ABS is no longer needed due to traffic level reductions. The subdivision is being used for storage only. The Hoosier Subdivision has been out of service since the Surface Transportation Board approved the discontinuance of service, in April 2010. There has been no traffic in 2015 or 2016 over this segment. The ABS will be discontinued and replaced with track warrant control D–505 rules.
