Railroad Law

We have been involved on behalf of clients in many aspects of regulation by the Surface Transportation Board and its predecessor the Interstate Commerce Commission.  This includes transactions and other projects for which STB approval or exemption is required, such as: 

  • Line abandonments (exempt, non-exempt and adverse abandonments, including environmental and historic preservation requirements and offers of financial assistance)
  • Line constructions (including build-ins and build-outs, “forced” rail crossings, and reactivations)
  • Trackage rights (including “forced” or terminal trackage rights) and joint use arrangements
  • Transloading agreements
  • Litigation related to federal preemption and railroads
  • Adversarial proceedings before the Surface Transportation Board
