* Effective January 1, 2008, each of the Kansas City Southern Railway Company Union 401(k) Plan (the “KCSR Union Plan”) and the Midsouth Rail Union 401(k) Plan (the “Midsouth Union Plan”) was merged into the Kansas City Southern 401(k) and Profit Sharing Plan (the “KCS Plan”). As a result, each of the KCSR Union Plan and the Midsouth Union Plan has ceased to exist and the interests in the KCSR Union Plan and the Midsouth Union Plan no longer exist. Pursuant to Rule 15d-6, the KCS Plan is filing this Form 15 as successor in interest to each of the KCSR Union Plan and the Midsouth Union Plan to reflect the suspension of each such plan’s duty to file reports under Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The KCS Plan files annual and other reports under commission file No. 333-51854.
     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Kansas City Southern has caused this certification/notice to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned duly authorized person.
