Hollis & Eastern Railroad Company (Applicant), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire and operate the railroad line of Hollis & Eastern Railroad Company (Target) between Duke, OK, at milepost 0, and the Wichita, Tillman & Jackson Ry. Co. line, at milepost 14, located approximately 14 miles to the east.
The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on or about November 9, 2000. The earliest the transaction could be consummated was November 7, 2000, 7 days after the exemption was filed.
If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to reopen the proceeding 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.
