SDR states that there are no mileposts on the subject line but that it may install mileposts at a later date. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Aug 31, 2017 Jkt 241001 SDR certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class I or Class II rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million. SDR also states that there are no provisions or agreements limiting interchange with other carriers. The transaction may be consummated on or after September 15, 2017, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed). If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than September 8, 2017 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36142, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on applicant’s representative, Richard F. Riley Jr., Foley & Lardner LLP, 3000 K Street NW., Suite 600, Washington, DC 20007–5109.

SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

[Docket No. FD 36142 (Sub-No. 1)]


Savage Services Corporation--Continuance in Control Exemption--
Savage Davenport Railroad Company

    Savage Services Corporation (Savage) has filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to continue in control of Savage 
Davenport Railroad Company (SDR) upon SDR's becoming a Class III rail 
carrier.
    This transaction is related to a concurrently filed verified notice 
of exemption in Savage Davenport Railroad Company--Lease & Operation 
Exemption--City of Davenport, Iowa, Docket No. FD 36142. In that 
proceeding, SDR seeks an exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to lease and 
operate a 2.8-mile line of railroad owned by the City of Davenport, 
Iowa.
    The earliest this transaction may be consummated is September 15, 
2017, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified 
notice was filed). SDR states that it intends to consummate the 
transaction in October 2017.
    Savage is a privately held company that controls Savage, Bingham & 
Garfield Railroad Company (SBG), a Class III rail carrier.
    Savage represents that: (1) The rail lines of SDR and SBG do not 
connect with each other; (2) the continuance in control is not part of 
a series of anticipated transactions that would connect the rail line 
to be operated by SDR with any other railroad in applicant's corporate 
family; and (3) there are no other rail carriers in the Savage 
corporate family.\1\ Therefore, the proposed transaction is exempt from 
the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 
1180.2(d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Although Savage does not explicitly state that its 
transaction will not involve a Class I carrier, see 49 CFR 
1180.2(d)(2)(iii), the Board infers such as SBG is a Class III 
carrier, SDR has sought an exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to become 
a Class III carrier, and there are no other rail carriers in the 
Savage corporate family.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption 
authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to 
protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does 
not provide for labor protection for transactions under Section 11324 
and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the 
Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of 
the carriers involved are Class III carriers.
    If the notice contains false or misleading information, the 
exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 
U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to 
revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. 
Stay petitions must be filed no later than September 8, 2017 (at least 
seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. 
FD 36142 (Sub-No. 1) must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy 
of each pleading must be served on applicant's representative, Richard 
F. Riley Jr., Foley & Lardner LLP, 3000 K Street NW., Suite 600, 
Washington, DC 20007-5109.
