The Board granted an application by Alloy Property Company, LLC (Alloy) for adverse abandonment of the Goose Island Segment in 2018, see Alloy Property Co., LLC—Adverse Aban.—Chi. Terminal R.R. in Chicago, Ill., AB 1258 (STB served Apr. 30, 2018), and authorized abandonment of the North Elston Segment in 2018, see Chi. Terminal R.R.—Abandonment Exemption—in Chicago, Ill., AB 1268X (STB served Sept. 28, 2018). The City states that the Board issued a Certificate of Interim Trail Use (CITU) for the Goose Island Segment and a Notice of Interim Trail Use (NITU) for the North Elston Segment, and the City and CTM have been negotiating a trail use agreement pursuant to the National Trails System Act, 16 U.S.C. 1247(d). The trail use negotiation period in both proceedings has been extended to September 23, 2019. Alloy Property Co., LLC—Adverse Aban.—Chi. Terminal R.R. in Chicago, Ill., AB 1258 et al. (STB served Apr. 15, 2019). The City’s verified notice describes three agreements, under which the City and CTM will both consummate their trail use agreement regarding the Line and transfer CTM’s right to reactivate freight service to the City upon or shortly after the effective date of this verified notice of exemption. First, the City states that the Line will be the subject of a trail use agreement between the City as the trail sponsor and CTM, which is currently the residual common carrier rights holder. Second, the City states that CTM and Alloy have negotiated and are prepared to enter into an Asset Purchase Agreement through which CTM has committed to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:02 Aug 01, 2019 Jkt 247001 convey its easement and other property interests in the Line to Alloy. Finally, the City states that it and Alloy anticipate entering into an agreement through which Alloy may direct CTM, per the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, to transfer directly to the City certain easement and other property interests in the Line for purposes of carrying out certain trail uses as the trail use sponsor. According to the City, it will thereby acquire both CTM’s real property interests and the right to reactive rail service on the Line. The City certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier. The City further certifies that the proposed transaction does not involve a provision or agreement that would limit future interchange with a third-party connecting carrier. The transaction may be consummated on or after August 18, 2019, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed).
