(the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Zip Code 55934. According to DM&E, it is seeking abandonment of the Line because VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Apr 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 Kruegel Gas Service (KGS), the sole remaining shipper on the Line, has determined that it no longer requires DM&E to provide common carrier rail service directly to its facility. After abandoning the Line, DM&E states that it will reclassify a segment of the Line as excepted industry track and transfer it to KGS, which will use the track for shipping, receiving, and storing railcars. DM&E states that it will continue to provide service from its Waseca Subdivision up to the industry track. DM&E also states that it has executed a purchase and sale agreement to transfer, upon receipt of abandonment authority, an approximately 1.5-mile segment of the Line to the Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota (Trails Council) for use as a recreational trail. According to DM&E, there has been no overhead traffic on the Line since before 1997 when DM&E abandoned a 13.03-mile segment of the Plainview Branch. See Dakota, Minn. & E. R.R.— Aban. Exemption—in Wabasha and Olmsted Ctys, Minn., AB 337 (Sub–No. 5X) (STB served Dec. 16, 1996). DM&E states that there has been no local traffic on the Line for more than two years other than traffic received and tendered by KGS. DM&E also states that there are no stations on the Line. In addition to an exemption from the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 10903, DM&E also seeks an exemption from the offer of financial assistance (OFA) procedures of 49 U.S.C. 10904 and the public use provisions of 49 U.S.C. 10905. In support, DM&E states that an exemption from these provisions is necessary to facilitate the sale of a segment of the Line to KGS, the only shipper on the Line, for use as a private industrial track, and the sale of the remaining segment of the Line to the Trails Council for use as a recreational trail. DM&E’s request for exemption from § 10904 and § 10905 will be addressed in the final decision. According to DM&E, the Line does not contain federally granted rights-of-way. Any documentation in DM&E’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad— Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). By issuing this notice, the Board is instituting an exemption proceeding pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 10502(b). A final decision will be issued by July 14, 2017. Any OFA under 49 CFR 1152.27(b)(2) for continued rail service will be due by July 24, 2017, or 10 days after service of PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 18205 a decision granting the petition for exemption, whichever occurs first. Each OFA must be accompanied by a $1,700 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). All interested persons should be aware that, following abandonment, the Line may be suitable for other public use, including interim trail use. Any request for a public use condition under 49 CFR 1152.28 or for interim trail use/ rail banking under 49 CFR 1152.29 will be due no later than May 8, 2017. Each interim trail use request must be accompanied by a $300 filing fee. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(27). All filings in response to this notice must refer to Docket No. AB 337 (Sub– No. 8X) and must be sent to: (1) Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001; and (2) W.
