After evaluating comments received in response to the NPR, the Board served a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SNPR) on August 4, 2016, with modified proposals for eliminating the makewhole adjustment and changing the LUM cost allocation, and a new proposal to modify train-mile (TM) cost allocations. For the reasons stated below, the Board will discontinue this proceeding. As discussed in prior decisions in this proceeding, the Board uses URCS for a variety of regulatory functions. URCS is used in rate reasonableness proceedings as part of the initial market dominance determination. URCS also plays a role in the Board’s determination of whether a rate exceeds a reasonable maximum, and, when warranted, setting the maximum rate prescription. In addition, URCS is used to develop variable costs for making cost determinations in abandonment, certain trackage rights, and other proceedings; to provide the railroad industry and shippers with a standardized costing model; to cost the Board’s Carload Waybill Sample; and to provide interested parties with basic cost information regarding railroad industry operations. URCS develops a regulatory cost estimate that can be applied to a service that occurs anywhere on a rail carrier’s system. These cost estimates are developed through three distinct phases of URCS. • Phase I occurred only once when URCS was originally developed using the annual reports submitted by Class I rail carriers (R–1 reports).
