DECISION

 

Docket No. FD 35661[1]

 

GRAND TRUNK WESTERN RAILROAD COMPANY—ACQUISITION OF OPERATING EASEMENT—CSX TRANSPORTATION, INC.

 

 

Docket No. FD 35522[2]

 

CSX TRANSPORTATION, INC.—ACQUISITION OF OPERATING EASEMENT—GRAND TRUNK WESTERN RAILROAD COMPANY

 

Decision No. 3

 

Decided:  October 11, 2012 

 

NOTICE TO THE PARTIES:

 

            Under the procedural schedules established in decisions served on September 12, 2012 (September 12 Decisions), any person wishing to participate as a Party of Record in these proceedings was to have filed a notice of intent to participate by September 26, 2012.

 

            In both cases, the only entity (other than the applicant or petitioner itself) seeking to participate as a Party of Record is the other party to the overall easement swap described in the September 12 decisions.  Thus, in both dockets, the Parties of Record are:

1700 K Street, N.W., Suite 400

            Each Party of Record must by October 22, 2012, serve a copy of all filings submitted so far in these proceedings on the other, to the extent they have not already done so, and certify to the Board that such service has been accomplished. 

 

Because the Board allows only one official representative per party, the following persons will be designated as Non-Parties in both dockets and will receive copies of Board decisions, orders, and notices but not copies of official filings:

Any document filed in these proceedings must be filed either via the Board’s e-filing format or in the traditional paper format.  Any person e-filing a document should attach a document and otherwise comply with the instructions found on the Board’s website at “www.stb.dot.gov” at the “E-FILING” link.  Any person filing a document in the traditional paper format should send to the Board an original and 10 paper copies of the document (and also an electronic version).  Every filing made after the service date of this Notice must have its own certificate of service indicating that all Parties of Record have been served with a copy of the filing.

 

By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
