FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2019– 0044. Applicant: The Belt Railway Company of Chicago, Mr. Harold T. Kirman, Director Strategic Planning & Compliance, 6900 South Central Avenue, Bedford Park, IL 60638–6397. Specifically, BRC requests permission to permanently remove signals 8R and 24RC within the interlocking at Lemoyne, Chicago, IL, located on BRC’s Kenton Line at milepost 6.7. Signals 8R and 24RC share a common mast and are a legacy configuration from the Canadian National Railway adopting centralized traffic control on the Joliet Subdivision. BRC states the removal of these signals will eliminate superfluous signals with a commensurate reduction in the cost of maintaining the signals. The balance of the interlocking functionality will remain the same.

The signal system consists of wayside signals at CP MY and CP John governing movement into a single block between the two interlockings. There are no wayside signals between CP MY and CP John. There are cab signals, which would be removed. Conrail states the majority of the track has poor shunting due to rusty rail which has forced Conrail to disable the signal system.
