On October 28, 2019, The Blacklands Railroad (BLR) filed a petition under 49 U.S.C. 10502 for exemption from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 10903 to discontinue its operations over approximately 76 miles of rail line (the Line) in Hunt, Delta, Hopkins, Franklin, and Titus Counties, Tex.1 In particular, BLR seeks authority to discontinue its operating rights over: (1) Approximately 31 miles of a line of railroad owned by the Northeast Texas Rural Rail Transportation District (NETEX) from milepost 524.0, located 6.2 miles west of Sulphur Springs, to milepost 555.0, near Greenville (also known as Simtrott); (2) an additional 34.59 miles of NETEX’s line, from milepost 524.0 to milepost 489.41, at the eastern county line of Franklin County; and (3) trackage rights acquired by NETEX over a Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) line, from milepost 489.41 to milepost 479.0 at Mt. Pleasant where BLR interchanges traffic with UP.2 The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 75455, 75493, 75457, 75478, 75482, 75401, 75433, 75428, and 75402. According to BLR, its operations over the Line have resulted in significant financial losses over the last four years and there is no reasonable basis to believe profitability will improve in the near future. In addition, BLR states that, upon discontinuance, no customer on the Line will be left without common carrier service because NETEX is itself a Class III rail carrier on the Line.3 BLR states that it believes the Line does not contain any federally granted rights-of-way. BLR states that any documentation in its possession will be made available to those requesting it.

In light of a supplement filed on October 28, 2019, that date is deemed the filing date of the petition for exemption. 2 BLR states that it also leases directly from UP the segment between milepost 489.40 and milepost 481.5, and that these leased operations from UP are not the subject of the discontinuance authority sought in this proceeding. See Blacklands R.R.— Lease & Operation Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 34723 (STB served July 26, 2005). 3 BLR states that NETEX sought and received authority to acquire and operate the Line as a common carrier in Northeast Texas Rural Rail Transportation District—Purchase (Portion) Exemption—St. Louis Southwestern Railway Company, FD 32841 (STB served Jan. 26, 1996) and Northeast Texas Rural Rail Transportation District—Acquisition Exemption—Lines of Union Pacific Railroad Company, FD 33892 (STB served Jul. 26, 2000).
