South Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad, Inc.--Acquisition Exemption--
Kansas Eastern Railroad, Inc.

    South Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad, Inc., a Class III rail common 
carrier, has filed a notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to 
acquire and operate 94.8 miles of rail line from the Kansas Eastern 
Railroad, Inc. between milepost 343.7, at Columbus, KS, and milepost 
438.5, at Severy, KS.
    The transaction was expected to be consummated on or shortly after 
June 27, 1997.
    If the notice contains false or misleading information, the 
exemption is void ab 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 does not automatically stay the transaction.

Finance Docket No. 33419, must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, N.W.,
