Start Preamble

Texas Central Business Lines Corporation (TCB) has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to provide nonexclusive switching service over approximately 5.0 miles of yard and switching track located entirely within the MidTexas International Center, Inc. (Inland Port).[1] The track generally is located north of State Highway 287 and east of U.S. Highway 67 in Midlothian, TX.

The transaction is expected to be consummated on or after March 1, 2001.[2]

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 filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.

An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 33997, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on David D. Watson, P.O. Box 665, Waxahachie, TX 75168.
