Mannheim Armitage Railway, LLC (Mannheim), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption
According to Mannheim, there are no mileposts associated with the track, which is located in the city of Melrose Park, Cook County. Mannheim states that Anderson is its corporate parent and that the track is currently being used by Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad (IHBR) to serve 2 active shippers. Anderson originally anticipated that the track would be conveyed to IHBR, but IHBR has been unwilling to accept responsibility for the track. Mannheim states that it will be the operator of the property and will establish suitable interchange arrangements with IHBR at the junction of the track and expects to discuss the possibility of using IHBR's locomotives (as well as IHBR crews) to provide service over the track.
The transaction may not be consummated until September 23, 2011 (30 days after the notice of exemption was filed).
Mannheim certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not exceed levels that will qualify it as a Class III rail carrier.
If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35540, 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 Donald G. Avery, 1224 17th St., NW., Washington, DC 20036.
