CSX Transportation, Inc.—
Abandonment Exemption—in
Davidson County, Tenn.
On June 30, 2021, CSX
Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) filed a
petition under 49 U.S.C. 10502 for
exemption from the prior approval
requirements of 49 U.S.C. 10903 to
abandon an approximately 2,262-foot
rail line between milepost Val Sta.
2403+77 and milepost Val Sta. 2426+39
on its Nashville Division, Nashville
Terminal Subdivision, in Davidson
County, Tenn. (the Line). The Line
traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Code
According to CSXT, in the last two
years, there were two shippers on the
Line, Cherokee Marine Terminals and
Kenwal Steel Corporation. (Pet. 3.)
CSXT states that the property on which
both shippers were located has been
purchased by Monroe Infrastructure,
LLC (Monroe), (id.), that both shippers
are no longer located on the Line, (id.
at 5), and that there are no current
customers on the Line, (id.). Moreover,
CSXT represents that Monroe intends to
redevelop the land adjacent to the Line
for non-rail purposes—specifically
retail, residential, and office space—and
that the City has rezoned the adjacent
land for residential and commercial use.
(Id. at 4–5.) Thus, CSXT asserts, there
are no prospects for future shippers on
the Line. (Id. at 5.) CSXT seeks to
abandon its interest in the Line and sell
the property to Monroe to facilitate the
redevelopment of the adjacent property.
(Id. at 4.)
CSXT states that, based on the
information in its possession, the Line
does not contain federally granted
rights-of-way. Any documentation in
CSXT’s possession will be made
available promptly to those requesting
The interest of railroad employees
will be protected by the conditions set
forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad—

Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C.
91 (1979).
