Counties, Ind.

    On July 9, 2021, C&NC Railroad, LLC (C&NC), filed a petition under 
49 U.S.C. 10502 for exemption from the prior approval requirements of 
49 U.S.C. 10903 to discontinue service over approximately 21 miles of 
rail line extending from milepost CB 5.4 at Beesons, Ind., to milepost 
25.30 at New Castle, Ind., and from milepost R 0.1 to milepost R 1.16 
at New Castle (the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip 
Codes 47327, 47357, 47362, 47366, 47331, and 47387.
    C&NC states that it provides service on the Line pursuant to a 
lease with Norfolk Southern Railway Company (NSR), which owns the Line. 
(Pet. 1.) See also C&NC R.R.--Lease Exemption Containing Interchange 
Commitment--Norfolk S. Ry., FD 35858 (STB served Nov. 5, 2014). 
According to C&NC, NSR has notified C&NC that the lease is being 
terminated and that NSR will resume rail operations over the Line as a 
common carrier upon the discontinuance of service by C&NC. (Pet. 1.) 
C&NC states that there currently is one shipper on the Line, and that 
no interruption in rail service will result from the proposed 
discontinuance. (Id. at 4.)
    C&NC states that it has no information indicating that the Line 
contains federally granted rights-of-way and, if it discovers any 
information regarding federally granted rights-of-way, it will be made 
available to those requesting it. (Id. at 2.) C&NC states that 
discontinuance authority it seeks covers the ``entire system'' operated 
by C&NC, and it therefore requests that the Board decline to impose 
employee protective conditions. (Id. at 6.)
    By issuance of this notice, the Board is instituting an exemption 
proceeding pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 10502(b). A final decision will be 
issued by October 27, 2021.

interim trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not 
appropriate. Because there will be environmental review during any 
subsequent abandonment, this discontinuance does not require an 
environmental review. See 49 CFR 1105.6(c)(5), 1105.8(b).
    Any offer of financial assistance (OFA) for subsidy under 49 CFR 
1152.27(b)(2) will be due no later than 120 days after the filing of 
the petition for exemption, or 10 days after service of a decision
