Applicant: Union Pacific Railroad Company, Mr. Neal Hathaway, AVP Signal Maintenance & Construction, 1400 Douglas Street MS/RM 0910, Omaha, NE 68179.

Returning Moffat Runner (Track 101) to yard track will allow a remote control locomotive pullback on Track 102 to be extended to DS005, at Federal Boulevard, stopping the pullback control 290 feet short of the insulated joints for signal 2W(S) CD.

Specifically, GRYR seeks reconsideration of FRA’s May 7, 2020, decision to deny GRYR’s September 18, 2019, proposed discontinuance and removal of the automatic block signal (ABS) system located from milepost (MP) 403.0 near Southaven, MS, to MP 617.4 near Grenada, MS. In its July 3, 2020, petition, GRYR states that reactivation of the ABS system, which has been out of service since 2014, is not justified by current rail operations, and the prohibitive costs of reactivation will require the use of capital which could be better spent on other projects to yield stronger safety benefits. GRYR further states that under the ownership of RailUSA, GRYR has worked diligently and invested significantly to revitalize this longneglected rail line, re-establish operations on the southern half of its system, and improve the safety and operations of the northern half of its system. The committed focus on rail safety and continued investment in infrastructure is expected to continue to improve the safety and operations of GRYR’s main line and adjacent rail facilities.
