[STB Finance Docket No. 33799]
Riverport Railroad, L.L.C.--Lease and Operation Exemption--Jo-Davies/Carrol County Local Re-Development Authority
Riverport Railroad, L.L.C., a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to lease from the Jo-Davies/Carrol County Local Re-Development Authority and operate approximately 50 miles of rail lines. The lines are located in the former Savanna Army Ammo Depot near Savanna, IL, adjacent to the main line of The Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF), at BNSF milepost 156.9, and consist of two former classification tracks, a loop track, and several stub tracks.
The transaction is scheduled to be consummated on or after September 10, 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. 33799, 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 Karl Morell, Esq., Ball Janik LLP, 1455 F Street, N.W., Suite 225, Washington, DC 20005.
