[STB Finance Docket No. 33806]
Tishomingo Railroad Company, Inc.--Lease and Operation Exemption--Line of State of Mississippi at Iuka, MS
Tishomingo Railroad Company, Inc., a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to lease from the State of Mississippi, Department of Economic and Community Development, and operate approximately 10 miles of rail line in Iuka, MS (line). The line runs between the Tri-State Commerce Park and a connection with the Memphis main line of Norfolk Southern Corporation, at station 8385-475 (east leg of Wye) and station 8406.00 (west leg of Wye).
The parties report that they intend to consummate the transaction promptly after the effective date of the exemption. The earliest the transaction can be consummated is October 21, 1999, 7 days after the exemption was filed.
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. 33806, 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 James E. Howard, Esq., 90 Canal Street, Boston, MA 02114.
