TxDOT states that it has reached an agreement with UP whereby TxDOT will acquire UP's right, title, and interest in certain personal and real property in Fannin County. TxDOT further states that it will also enter into an agreement with the Fannin Rural Rail Transportation District (FRRTD) that will permit FRRTD or its operator to conduct tourist passenger operations between mileposts 94.0 and 128.78.
A related verified notice of exemption was concurrently filed in Docket No. FD 35494,

If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void
