SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD
Docket No. FD 35343
Susquehanna Union Railroad Company—Control Exemption—North Shore Railroad Company, Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad Company, Shamokin Valley Railroad Company, Juniata Valley Railroad Company, Lycoming Valley Railroad Company, and Union County Industrial Railroad Company
Decided: May 18, 2010
On April 12, 2010, Susquehanna Union Railroad Company (SURC), a nonoperating holding company, filed a petition for exemption (petition) from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. § 11323(a)(4) to acquire 100% stock control of 6 Class III railroads: North Shore Railroad Company, Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad Company, Shamokin Valley Railroad Company, Juniata Valley Railroad Company, Lycoming Valley Railroad Company, and Union County Industrial Railroad Company. Replies to the petition were due by May 3, 2010.
The due date for replies was extended until June 3, 2010 by decision served on April 30, 2010 (April 2010 decision). The April 2010 decision incorrectly identified SURC as the requesting party based on an inadvertent error in the original extension request. An amended copy of the extension request was resubmitted. Accordingly, this decision is being issued to correct the April 2010 decision to reflect that SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority, not SURC, requested the extension.
This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
It is ordered:
1. The April 2010 decision is corrected as set forth above.
2. This decision is effective on the service date.
By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
