SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD
Docket No. FD 35369
Decided: April 23, 2010
On April 8,
2010, the City of Temple, Tex. (Temple), a noncarrier, filed a verified notice
of exemption under 49 C.F.R. § 1150.31 to acquire from the Georgetown Railroad
Company (Georgetown), and to operate, a rail line approximately 6.277 miles
long, between milepost 0.00, near Belton, and milepost 6.277, in Smith, Bell
County, Tex. (the line). According to
Board authority to acquire a rail
line involves the obligation to operate common carrier service over the line
upon reasonable request.
It might be possible for the
parties here to structure this transaction in a different manner in order to
meet their goals. For example,
It is ordered:
1. The notice of exemption is rejected without prejudice.
2. This decision will be effective on its service date.
By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
