This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Camp Chase Rail, LLC (Camp Chase Rail), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire from Camp Chase Railway Company, LLC (CCRY), and operate approximately 14 miles of rail line between milepost 141.4 in Columbus, Ohio, and milepost 155.4 in Lilly Chapel, Ohio (the Line).
Camp Chase Rail states that it is a newly established subsidiary of MB Rail IB, LLC (MB Rail), formed to acquire and operate the Line. The acquisition is part of a larger transaction between MB Rail and Indiana Boxcar Corporation (IBC) under which MB Rail will acquire all of the equity in two railroads currently owned by IBC; MB Rail's subsidiary, Camp Chase Rail, will acquire the Line and other assets of a third IBC railroad, CCRY; and another MB Rail subsidiary, Youngstown & Southeastern Railroad, LLC (YSR), will acquire a rail line and other assets of a fourth IBC railroad, Youngstown & Southeastern Railroad Co. (Y&S).
This transaction is related to two concurrently filed verified notices of exemption: MB Rail IB, LLC—Acquisition & Continuance in Control Exemption—Chesapeake & Indiana Railroad, Vermilion Valley Railroad, Camp Chase Rail, & Youngstown & Southeastern Railroad, Docket No. FD 36413, in which MB Rail seeks, among other things, to continue in control of Camp Chase Rail upon Camp Chase Rail's becoming a Class III rail carrier; and Youngstown & Southeastern Railroad, LLC—Acquisition & Operation Exemption—Youngstown & Southeastern Railroad Co., Docket No. FD 36415, in which YSR seeks to acquire the rail line of Y&S.
Camp Chase Rail certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not exceed $5 million or the threshold required to qualify as a Class III carrier. Camp Chase Rail also certifies that the proposed acquisition and operation of the Line do not involve a provision or agreement that may limit future interchange with a third-party connecting carrier.
The transaction may be consummated on or after July 15, 2020, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed).
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 for stay must be filed no later than July 8, 2020 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36414, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board either via e-filing or in writing addressed to 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Camp Chase Rail's representative, Charles H. Montange, Law Offices of Charles H. Montange, 426 NW 162nd Street, Seattle, WA 98177.
