Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railroad--Lease and 
Operation Exemption--Union Pacific Railroad Company

    Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railroad, a Class III rail 
carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 
to lease and operate a total of approximately 7.92 miles of rail line 
(known as the Port Lead) owned by Union Pacific Railroad Company (UPRR) 
between milepost 0.0 at Brownsville, TX (from the Port Lead connection 
with UPRR's rail yard in downtown Brownsville) and milepost 7.92 at the 
Port of Brownsville, TX. The transaction was expected to be consummated 
on or after September 8, 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 will not automatically stay the transaction.
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB 
Finance Docket No. 33452, must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, N.W., 
Washington, DC 20423-0001 and served on: Robert A. Wimbish, Rea, Cross 
& Auchincloss, 1920 N Street, Suite 420, N.W., Washington, DC 20036.

    Decided: September 15, 1997.
