Pursuant to Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 235 and 49 U.S.C. 20502(a), the following railroad has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval for the discontinuance or modification of the signal system or relief from the requirements of 49 CFR Part 236, as detailed below.
Applicant: R. J. Corman Railroad, Mr. J. D. Boles, Manager of Signals, 101 McKenna Way, Bardstown, Kentucky 40004.
The R. J. Corman Railroad seeks approval of the proposed discontinuance and removal of two operative approach signals. The operative approach signals are located at each end of the R. J. Corman Railroad, Central Kentucky Line Old Road Subdivision, one approaching CSX Transportation's (CSXT) CP North Cabin, Milepost VB 113.8, Winchester, Kentucky, and one approaching CSXT's CP HK Tower, Milepost W12.5, Anchorage, Kentucky. Signal 1128 is located within yard limits, and is approaching North Cabin CP. Signal 131 is approaching HK Tower CP. It is proposed to replace each signal with a permanent fixed sign. The reason for the proposed changes is that present day operation does not warrant need or retention of operative approach signals.
Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request.
