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: CSX Transportation, Incorporated, Mr. C. M. King, Chief Engineer, Communications and Signals, 500 Water Street, SC J-350, Jacksonville, Florida 32202.
The CSX Transportation, Incorporated seeks approval of the proposed discontinuance of CP Barboursville Station (MP CA-494.37), including the conversion of the power-operated switch to hand operation, and the discontinuance and removal of dispatcher controlled signals 42R, 44R, 46L, 46RA, and 46RB on Main Tracks #1 and #2, on the Huntington Division, Kanawha Subdivision, at CP Barboursville Station, milepost CA-494.37.
The reason given for the proposed changes is a pole line elimination project and that the power-operated switch and signals at the east leg of wye are no longer needed for present day operations.
Any interested party desiring to protest the granting of an application shall set forth specifically the grounds upon which the protest is made, and include a concise statement of the interest of the party in the proceeding. Additionally, one copy of the protest shall be furnished to the applicant at the address listed above.
