Acadiana Railway Company, Inc. (AKDN), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to lease and operate 5.0 miles of rail line from Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) between milepost 0.0 at McCall, LA, and milepost 5.0 at Lula, LA. AKDN states that its projected revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in its becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier, and certifies that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 million.
The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on or after September 13, 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.
