In a decision served on September 10, 2013, the Board denied a petition in Docket No. FD 35247 to revoke Grenada Railway, LLC's (GRYR) exemption to acquire and operate a rail line approximately 175.4 miles long between milepost 403.0, at Southaven, Miss., and milepost 703.8, near Canton, Miss. (the Line). In that same decision, the Board also established this subdocket to assess the lawfulness of an embargo GRYR imposed on a portion of the Line in 2011.[1] In doing so, the Board directed GRYR to file responses to certain information requests concerning GRYR's embargo and indicated that it would hold a public meeting, conducted by Board staff, in Mississippi to allow interested persons to appear and speak on the effects of the embargo.[2]

During the public meeting, Board staff will hear comments regarding GRYR's embargo. The meeting will continue until all interested persons or parties have had an opportunity to speak. Persons wishing to speak should place their names on the list of speakers upon arrival at the Montgomery County Courthouse. A court reporter will transcribe the meeting and prepare a transcript that will be included in the public record of the proceeding.

All decisions, notices, and filings in this proceeding are available on the Board's Web site at “” A transcript of the meeting will also be posted on the Board's Web site.

This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
