Start Preamble

Rail + Transload, Inc. (RTI), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption [1] under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire from Tower Investments, LLC (TIL), and to operate approximately 1,100 feet (0.208 miles) of railroad track that extends from a point of connection with the Waterloo Spur of Canadian Pacific Railway Company (CPR) to a terminus approximately 200 feet northeast of the plant site of Specialty Ingredients, LLC (SIL), at Watertown, Jefferson County, Wisconsin.[2]

RTI certifies that its projected annual 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 or after July 3, 2006, the effective date of the exemption.

If the 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 Start Printed Page 42440a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.

An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 34894, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on Thomas F. McFarland, Thomas F. McFarland, P.C., 208 South LaSalle Street, Suite 1890, Chicago, IL 60604-1112.

2.  RTI and SIL are commonly controlled by TIL. The track is currently private track owned by TIL and used by CPR to provide rail service to SIL. Because this acquisition is RTI's initial rail acquisition and operation, RTI filed this notice.
