[STB Finance Docket No. 33752]
Greenville County Economic Development Corporation--Acquisition Exemption--South Carolina Central Railroad Company, Inc., Carolina Piedmont Division
Greenville County Economic Development Corporation (Greenville County), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire two sections of rail line from the South Carolina Central Railroad Company, Inc., Carolina Piedmont Division (CPDR), in Greenville County, SC, as follows: (1) between milepost AJK 585.34, in East Greenville, and milepost AJK 588.63, in Greenville, a distance of 3.29 miles (Southern Line);(1) and (2) between milepost 0.0, in Greenville, and milepost 11.8, in Traveler's Rest, a distance of 11.8 miles (Northern Line).(2)
The transaction is expected to be consummated on or shortly after May 28, 1999.
If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to reopen the proceeding 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 transaction.
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 33752, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Robert J. Svets, Counsel for Greenville County Economic Development Corporation, Greenville County Square, 301 University Ridge, Suite 100, Greenville, SC 29601.
