NS seeks the discontinuance of control point BV&E located at milepost (MP) H–260.3 between Rutland Jct. MP H–197.00 and Smithville, GA MP H– 275.0 on the Albany District, Georgia Division, Americus, GA. NS will replace the power-operated switch with a hand-operated switch protected by a switch circuit controller and derail. The current controlled signals will be replaced with automatic signals. NS states the reason for the proposed change is that train operations in this area no longer support the need for the power-operated switch due to the limited number of movements that would require the switch to be in the reverse position. NS has also discontinued the use of the former 0Line that ties into the main track and is made inaccessible at the approach signal to BV&E Jct.
