Trans-Global Solutions, Inc. d/b/a Austin Area Terminal Railroad (AATR), a noncarrier, has filed a notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to operate approximately 162 miles of rail line owned by Capital Metropolitan Authority (CMTA), between milepost AUNW-MP0.0 (SPT-MP57.00), west of Giddings, TX, and milepost AUNW-MP154.07 (SPT MP 99.04), at Llano, TX, including the Marble Falls Branch (6.43 miles), the Scobee Spur (3.3 miles), and the Burnet Spur (0.93 miles), in Bastrop, Burnet, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson Counties, TX. The lines have been operated previously by Central of Tennessee Railway & Navigation Company Incorporated D/B/A The Longhorn Railway Company. AATR states that its annual revenues will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier and that its revenues are not projected to exceed $5 million.
The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on or after March 16, 2000.
If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.
