The first line is approximately 6.75 miles in length and is located between milepost 24.42 at Georgetown, Del., and milepost 31.17 at Harbeson, Del. (Lewes Running Track). The second line is approximately 4.92 miles in length and is located between milepost 0.00 at Ellendale, Del., and milepost 4.92 at Milton, Del. (Milton Industrial Track).2 DCR states that the Lewes Running Track previously was owned by a component of the Penn Central Transportation Company (PCTC) and abandoned pursuant to section 304 of the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973, 45 U.S.C. 744. According to DCR, the Milton Industrial Track also was owned by PCTC but was transferred to Consolidated Rail Corporation (Conrail), which subsequently abandoned it as authorized in Conrail Abandonment Between Ellendale & Milton, Del., AB 167 (Sub-No. 188N) (ICC served Mar. 26, 1982).3 DCR indicates that the State acquired the Lines after they were abandoned, and it contracted with Delaware Coast Line Railroad Company (DCLR) to operate them under a modified certificate of public convenience and necessity. See Del. Coast Line R.R.—Modified Rail Certificate, FD 30035 (ICC served Sept. 22, 1982). On November 13, 2018, DCLR filed notice, pursuant to 49 CFR 1 DCR operates approximately 177 miles of rail line on the Delmarva Peninsula in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. See Delmarva Cent. R.R.— Change in Operator Exemption—Cassatt Mgmt., LLC, FD 36196 (STB served June 4, 2018); Delmarva Cent. R.R.—Lease & Operation Exemption with Interchange Commitment—Norfolk S. Ry., FD 36071 (STB served Dec. 2, 2016). 2 DCR states that outer extensions of the Lewes Running Track and the Milton Industrial Track that were previously served by prior operators pursuant to modified certificates are no longer active and are not included in its notice for a modified certificate. 3 In its notice, DCR indicates that the Interstate Commerce Commission served the abandonment authorization on April 21, 1982 and August 4, 1982; however, it appears that abandonment authorization was first served on March 26, 1982. PO 00000 Frm 00136 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1150.24, of its intent to discontinue rail service over the Lines in Docket No. FD 30035. On May 25, 2018, DCR and the State signed an operating agreement, which authorizes DCR to provide service on the Lines from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2023, with one five-year renewal option. DCR’s notice includes a copy of the operating agreement. (See Notice Ex. B.) According to DCR, the sole interline connections for the Lines are with DCR, at Georgetown for the Lewes Running Track and at Ellendale for the Milton Industrial Track. DCR states that it intends to provide rail service on the Lines up to five days per week. The Lines qualify for a modified certificate of public convenience and necessity. See Common Carrier Status of States, State Agencies & Instrumentalities & Political Subdivisions, FD 28990F (ICC served July 16, 1981); 49 CFR 1150.22. DCR states that no subsidy is involved and there are no preconditions that shippers must meet to receive rail service and provides information regarding the nature and extent of its liability insurance coverage. See 49 CFR 1150.23(b)(4)–(5).
