This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Eastern Shore Railroad, Inc. (ESHR), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to operate a 20.2-mile line of railroad owned by Greater Shenandoah Valley Development Company d/b/a Shenandoah Valley Railroad Company (SVRR), between Pleasant Valley, VA (milepost 5.0) and Staunton, VA (milepost 25.2), in Rockingham and Augusta Counties, VA. ESHR certifies Start Printed Page 11617that its projected revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier.
The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on March 1, 2003.
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.
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 34313, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Larry E. LeMond, 202 Mason Avenue, P.O. Box 312, Cape Charles, VA 23310.
