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.
Georgia & Florida RailNet, Inc. (GFRR), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to acquire and to operate as a rail common carrier over a permanent irrevocable rail easement on property to be acquired by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) from the City of Willacoochee, GA. The subject track extends from Nashville, GA, at milepost 57.2, to Willacoochee, GA, at milepost 73.8, a distance of 16.6 miles. GFRR states that it has been operating over the track as exempt industrial trackage since it first acquired its lines of railroad in 1999.
GFRR indicates that the parties contemplate consummating the instant transaction on or before April 8, 2005. GFRR certifies that its projected revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier.
If the verified 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.
An original and 10 copes of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 34655, 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: John D. Heffner, 1920 N Street, NW., Suite 800, Washington DC 20036.

Decided: March 2, 2005.
By the Board, David M. Konschnik, Director, Office of Proceedings.
Vernon A. Williams,
1. GFRR also stated that its projected annual revenues following the transaction will exceed $5 million, but it requested waiver of the 60-day advance labor notice requirements at 49 CFR 1140.42(e). That request is being addressed by the Board in a separate decision. The Board's decision on the request will affect the effective date of the exemption and hence the date on which the transaction could be consummated.Back to Citation
