Louisville & Indiana Railroad Company (LIRC) has agreed to grant to CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) trackage rights over LIRC's line between milepost 110.56, at Louisville, KY, and milepost 4.0, at Indianapolis, IN, a distance of approximately 106.5 miles (line).
The transaction is scheduled to be consummated on June 15, 2001. The trackage rights will allow CSXT to operate efficiently between Louisville and Indianapolis.
As a condition to this exemption, any employees affected by the trackage rights will be protected by the conditions imposed in Norfolk and Western Ry. Co.—Trackage Rights—BN, 354 I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified in Mendocino Coast Ry., Inc.—Lease and Operate, 360 I.C.C. 653 (1980).
This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). If it 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.
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 33744, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
