R.J. Corman Railroad Company/Central Kentucky Lines, LLC--Trackage Rights Exemption--CSX Transportation, Inc.

Pursuant to a written trackage rights agreement dated February 5, 2005,1 CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) has agreed to grant limited overhead trackage rights to R.J. Corman Railroad Company/Central Kentucky Lines, LLC (RJCC)2 over a CSXT line of railroad between the end of the Water Street Lead at milepost 00T 1.8 in Louisville, Ky., and milepost 00T 12.5 at HK Tower in Anchorage, Ky., a distance of approximately 10.7 miles. This notice was filed to correct a misdescription of the corporate process by which RJCC actually obtained these trackage rights in 2005.3 In the original notices,R.J. Corman Railroad Company/Central Kentucky Lines, LLC--Acquisition and Operation Exemption--Line of R.J. Corman Railroad Property, LLC,FD 34624 (STB served Feb. 23, 2005), andR.J. Corman Railroad Property, LLC--Lease Exemption--Line of CSX Transportation, Inc.,FD 34625 (STB served Mar. 4, 2005), RJCC stated that it acquired the rights from CSXT through its corporate affiliate, R.J. Corman Railroad Property, LLC (Railroad Property). Instead, RJCC acquired the rights directly from CSXT, as stated in this notice.4

The transaction may be consummated on or after December 16, 2010, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption is filed). The trackage rights will allow RJCC to move certain commodities between RJCC's main line across Kentucky and the Water Street Lead in Louisville, which RJCC leases from CSXT.

As a condition to this exemption, any employees affected by the trackage rights will be protected by the conditions imposed inNorfolk and Western Railway-Trackage Rights-Burlington Northern, Inc.,354 I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified inMendocino Coast Railway-Lease and Operate-California Western Railroad,360 I.C.C. 653 (1980).

This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is voidab initio.Petitions 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 effectiveness of the exemption. Stay petitions must be filed by December 9, 2010 (at least 7 days before the exemption becomes effective).

An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35442, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Thomas J. Litwiler, 29 North Wacker Drive, Suite 920, Chicago, IL 60606.
