East Broad Top Connecting Railroad (EBTCR), a noncarrier, filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to operate a line of railroad (the Line) owned by the East Broad Top Railroad Preservation Association (the Association) 
totaling approximately 4.5 miles near Mt. Union, Pa. The Line consists of two segments: (1) The Mount Union Industrial Track (MUIT), extending between Railroad milepost 0.2, immediately west of the point of switch at Railroad Station 4085+96 at the junction with Norfolk Southern Railway (NSR) at Mt. Union, Pa., to the end of the track at milepost 1.4 at Railroad Station 4025+00, and (2) the original East Broad Top Main Line (EBT) extending from its connection with the MUIT at MUIT milepost 1.1, MUIT Railroad Station 4038+39 (EBT Start Printed Page 34565milepost 1.1, EBT Railroad Station 77+57) to EBT milepost 4.4.
EBTCR states that, once this notice becomes effective, EBTCR will provide all common carrier railroad service over the Line connecting with and interchanging traffic with NSR.
This transaction may be consummated on or after July 3, 2014 (30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed).
EBTCR certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction would not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier and further certifies that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 million.
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 effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than June 26, 2014 (at least 7 days before the exemption becomes effective).
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35811, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on John D. Heffner, Strasburger & Price, 1025 Connecticut Ave. NW., Suite 717, Washington, DC 20036.
