Whenever any Note or Notes are so presented or surrendered, Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee shall execute and deliver to Indenture Trustee, and Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to the Holder, the replacement Note or Notes which such Holder or the transferee, as the case may be, is entitled to receive.

No service charge shall be made to a Holder for any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes, but the Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes. The Registrar shall not be required (a) to register the transfer of or to exchange any Note during a period beginning at the opening of business 10 days before the day of the scheduled prepayment (or purchase in lieu of prepayment where applicable) of Notes pursuant to Section 6.1 or 8.3(e) and ending at the close of business on the scheduled date of prepayment (or purchase) or (b) to register the transfer of or to exchange any Note called for prepayment (or purchase in lieu of prepayment where applicable) pursuant to such Section 6.1 or 8.3(e). 2.5 INDENTURE TRUSTEE AS AGENT; OWNERSHIP OF NOTES.

Indenture Trustee shall promptly notify Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee of any such presentment, notice or demand; provided, however, that the failure of Indenture Trustee to so notify Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee shall not affect the obligations of Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee hereunder or under the Notes or, absent gross negligence or wilful misconduct, give rise to any liability of Indenture Trustee to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or to any other Person for any such failure. (b) Ownership of the Notes shall be proved by the Register kept by the Registrar. Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer of any Note, Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee shall deem and treat the Person in whose name any Note is registered as the absolute owner of such Note for the purpose of receiving payment of principal of, Premium, if any, and interest on such Note and for all other purposes whatsoever, whether or not such Note is overdue, and neither Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee nor Indenture Trustee shall be affected by notice to the contrary. 2.6 MUTILATED, DESTROYED, LOST OR STOLEN NOTES. If any Note is mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen, Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee shall, upon the written request of the relevant Holder, issue and execute, and Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to the relevant Holder in replacement thereof, a new Note of the same date of original issue and having the same Payment Dates, Debt Rate and Maturity Date, payable to the same Holder in the same principal amount and dated the same date as the Note so mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen. If the Note being replaced has become mutilated, such Note shall be surrendered to Indenture Trustee. If the Note being replaced has been destroyed, lost or stolen, the relevant Holder shall furnish to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee (i) such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee harmless and (ii) evidence satisfactory to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee of the destruction, loss or theft of such Note and of the ownership thereof. If the original Holder or such other Person that is an institutional investor is the owner of any such destroyed, lost or stolen Note, then the affidavit of the President, any Vice President, Assistant Vice President, Treasurer or Secretary of the original Holder or such other Person setting forth the fact of destruction, loss or theft and of its ownership of the Note, at the time thereof, shall be accepted as satisfactory evidence thereof, and no indemnity shall be required as a condition to the execution -15- and delivery of a new Note other than the written agreement of such original Holder or other Person reasonably satisfactory to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee to indemnify (including for any costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees) Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee for any claims or actions against them resulting from the issuance of such new Note or the reappearance of the old Note. Each Note issued pursuant to this Section 2.6 shall bear a notation by Indenture Trustee of (a) the aggregate amounts of principal of, and Premium, if any, on, such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note that were paid to any Holder thereof at any time before the delivery of such new Note and (b) the date to which interest on such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note had been paid to any Holder thereof at or prior to the time of such delivery. 2.7 CANCELLATION. All Notes surrendered for the purpose of payment, redemption, transfer or exchange shall be delivered to Indenture Trustee for cancellation or, if surrendered to Indenture Trustee, shall be canceled by it, and no Notes shall be issued in lieu thereof except as expressly required or permitted by this Indenture. Indenture Trustee shall deliver a certificate to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee specifying any cancellation of Notes that has been made. All such canceled Notes shall be held by Indenture Trustee until this Indenture is discharged, at which time Indenture Trustee shall either deliver such canceled Notes in a manner necessary to effect the discharge and release of this Indenture or, if no such delivery is necessary, such Notes shall be delivered to or disposed of as directed by Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee. 2.8 PAYMENT ON NOTES. (a) The principal of, the Premium, if any, interest on, and any other amounts payable with respect to, the Notes shall be payable at the principal office of Indenture Trustee, in lawful money of the United States of America without surrender or presentation of such Note and without any notation being made thereon. The Holder (or the Person for whom such Holder is a nominee) will, before selling, transferring or otherwise disposing of such Note, present such Note to Indenture Trustee for transfer and notation as provided in Section 2.4. Any payment or prepayment of amounts due on the Notes in accordance with the terms thereof and hereof which is due on a date that is not a Business Day shall be payable, at the election of Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee, on the next following Business Day without penalty or reduction of, or increase in, the amount of interest that is payable thereon. -16- (b) Notwithstanding Section 2.8(a), if any Note is held by the original Note Purchaser, a permitted successor or assign that is an institutional investor or a nominee thereof, Indenture Trustee shall, if requested in writing by such Holder, pay interest on such Note and pay or prepay the principal thereof and the Premium, if any, thereon and shall pay all other amounts due with respect to such Note, by check, duly mailed, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, or delivered to such Holder at its address appearing on the Register. Upon written notice from any Holder that is an original Note Purchaser, a permitted successor or assign that is an institutional investor or a nominee thereof, which notice shall be given not less than 30 days before the payment or prepayment of the Notes (and Section 2.16 shall constitute such written notice and wire transfer instructions until otherwise designated in the case of the Note Purchasers), Indenture Trustee will pay interest on such Note and pay or prepay the principal thereof and the Premium, if any thereon, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such institution in the continental United States as such Holder may designate in such notice, such wire transfers to be made on each date on which such payment or prepayment is due if, and only so long as, such institution has facilities for the receipt of a wire transfer. Indenture Trustee will transmit any such wire transfer from its offices not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on each date on which payment or prepayment is due if, and only so long as, available funds therefor have been received by Indenture Trustee by 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on such date or, if Indenture Trustee has not received such available funds, Indenture Trustee will transmit such wire transfer promptly upon receipt of such available funds. (c) A Holder shall have no further interest in, or other right with respect to, the Indenture Estate when and if the principal amount of, Premium, if any, and interest on all Notes held by such Holder and all other sums payable to such Holder and secured hereunder are paid in full. 2.9 PAYMENT FROM INDENTURE ESTATE ONLY; NONRECOURSE OBLIGATIONS; EXCESS AMOUNTS. (a) All amounts payable by Indenture Trustee and Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee under the Notes, this Indenture and the relevant Indenture Supplement shall be made only from the income and proceeds of the Indenture Estate and each Holder by its acceptance of its Note agrees that (i) it will look solely to such Indenture Estate for the payment of such amounts, to the extent -17- available for distribution to it as herein provided, and (ii) none of Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee, any Beneficiary, Indenture Trustee or any of their permitted successors or assigns, is or shall be personally liable to any Holder for any amount payable under such Note or this Indenture, except, in the case of Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee and any of their permitted successors or assigns, as expressly provided in this Indenture. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture, including Section 9, First Security shall be liable hereunder in its individual capacity for its own willful misconduct or gross negligence or, in the case of the holding or transfer of funds, the failure to act with the same care as it uses in the handling of its own funds. (b) First Security is entering into this Indenture solely as Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee under the Trust Agreement and not in its individual capacity, and in no case whatsoever shall First Security, or any entity acting as successor trustee under the Trust Agreement, be personally liable for, or for any loss in respect of, any statements, representations, warranties, agreements or obligations hereunder or thereunder; provided that First Security shall be liable hereunder (i) for the performance of its agreements under Sections 3.5(c), 5.5 and 5.9 of the Participation Agreement, and (ii) for its own willful misconduct or gross negligence or, in the case of the holding and transfer of funds, the failure to act with the same care as it uses in the handling of its own funds. If a successor Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee is appointed in accordance with the terms of Section 8 of the Trust Agreement and the Participation Agreement, such successor Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee shall, without any further act, succeed to all of the rights, duties, immunities and obligations hereunder, and its predecessor Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and First Security shall be released from all further duties and obligations hereunder, without prejudice to any claims against such predecessor Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or First Security, for any default by such predecessor Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or First Security, respectively, in the performance of its obligations hereunder prior to such appointment. (c) If (i) all or any part of the Trust Estate becomes the property of, or any Beneficiary becomes, a debtor subject to the reorganization provisions of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 or any successor provision, (ii) pursuant to such reorganization provisions, First Security or any Beneficiary is required, by reason of First Security or any Beneficiary being held to have recourse liability to the Holders or Indenture Trustee, -18- directly or indirectly, to make payment on account of the principal of, Premium, if any, or interest on the Notes and (iii) any Holder or Indenture Trustee actually receives any Excess Amount (as defined below) which reflects any payment by First Security or any Beneficiary on account of clause (ii) above, then such Holder or Indenture Trustee, as the case may be, shall promptly refund to First Security or such Beneficiary (whichever shall have made such payment) such Excess Amount. For purposes of this Section 2.9, "Excess Amount" means the amount by which any payment required to be made by First Security or any Beneficiary under clause (ii) above exceeds the amount which would have been received by the Holder(s) or Indenture Trustee if First Security or such Beneficiary had not become subject to the recourse liability referred to in clause (ii) above. 2.10 EXECUTION AND DELIVERY OF NOTES UPON ORIGINAL ISSUANCE. Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee shall issue, execute and deliver to Indenture Trustee, and Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to Holders, the Notes for original issuance only upon payment by Holders pursuant to the Participation Agreement of an amount equal to the aggregate original principal amount of the Notes. 2.11 SECURITY FOR AND PARITY OF NOTES. It is the intention of the parties hereto that all Notes issued and Outstanding hereunder rank on a parity with each other Note and, that as to each other Note, they be secured equally and ratably by the collateral described in this Indenture and any Indenture Supplement without preference, priority or distinction of any one thereof over any other by reason of difference in time of issuance, or otherwise, and that each such Note be entitled to the same benefits and security in this Indenture and any Indenture Supplement as each other such Note. 2.12 APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS TO NOTES. In the case of each Note, each payment of principal of, and Premium, if any, and interest on such Note, shall be applied, first, to the payment of accrued but unpaid interest on such Note (including any interest at the Late Rate on overdue principal, Premium and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) interest) to the date of such payment, second, the balance, if any, remaining thereafter to the payment of the principal amount due and payable on such Note, and third, the balance, if any, remaining thereafter, to the payment of Premium, if any, then due and payable on such Note, provided that such Note shall not be subject to prepayment or redemption by Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee except as provided in Sections 6.1 and 8.3(e). -19- 2.13 INTENTIONALLY OMITTED. 2.14 LATE RATE. If Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee, any Beneficiary or a Person designated by any of them elects or is required to redeem, prepay, pay or purchase any Note (in whole or in part) under any provision of this Indenture or any other Basic Document, and such redemption, prepayment or purchase is not consummated on the date originally scheduled therefor (unless, following General Partner's election to remove the Unit or Units from the Lien of the Indenture pursuant to Section 5.16 of the Participation Agreement, to exercise its ET Right pursuant to Section 9.1 of the Partnership Agreement, or to exercise its Special P.O. Right pursuant to Section 9.4 of the Partnership Agreement, Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee provides written notice to Indenture Trustee and each Holder no later than eight Business Days before such originally scheduled prepayment date to the effect that such termination or purchase will not occur and accordingly it will not be prepaying the Notes on such date), the Notes shall accrue interest at the Late Rate from such originally scheduled date for prepayment to the date of payment, payable on demand. 2.15 DEFINITION OF PREMIUM. As used herein "Premium" means as at any date a payment thereof is due (the "payment date") in connection with payment or prepayment in respect of any of the Notes the excess of (i) the present value as at the payment of the Prepaid Cash Flows, discounted semiannually at an annual rate which is equal to the Treasury Rate plus 0.50% over (ii) the aggregate principal amount of such Notes then to be paid or prepaid. To the extent that the Treasury Rate plus 0.50% at the time of determination of the Premium is equal to or higher than the rate of interest then borne by such Notes, the Premium shall be zero. The following terms shall have the following meanings: "PREPAID CASH FLOWS" -- for each date on which a payment of principal or interest, or both, is scheduled to become due on the Notes, an amount determined by subtracting (x) the amount of such payment scheduled to become due on such date after giving effect to any prepayment of principal that was originally scheduled to be paid on the date as to which the determination is being made from (y) the amount of such payment (exclusive of interest accrued to the date of such prepayment) which would have become due on such date but for such prepayment. -20- "STATISTICAL RELEASE" -- the then most recently published statistical release designated "H.15(519)" or any successor publication which is published weekly by the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded U.S. government securities adjusted to constant maturities or, if such statistical release is not published at the time of any determination hereunder, such other reasonably comparable index which shall be designated by a Majority In Interest. "TREASURY RATE" -- the yield to maturity of actually traded United States Treasury obligations with a constant maturity (rounded to the nearest month) corresponding to the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Prepaid Cash Flows as set forth on page 5 of the Telerate or, if not available, on page "USD" of the Bloomberg Financial Markets Screen (or, if not available, any other nationally recognized trading screen reporting on-line intraday trading in United States government securities) at 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day before the date fixed for prepayment, or in the event no such nationally recognized trading screen reporting on-line intraday trading in United States government securities is available, the arithmetic mean of the two most recent yields under the heading "week ending" published in the Statistical Release opposite the caption "Treasury Constant Maturities" for the maturity (rounded to the nearest month) corresponding to the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Prepaid Cash Flows. If no maturity exactly corresponding to the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Prepaid Cash Flows shall appear therein, yields for the two most closely corresponding published maturities shall be calculated pursuant to the foregoing sentence and the Treasury Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight-line basis (rounding to the nearest month). If such rates shall not have been so published, the Treasury Rate in respect of such determination date shall be calculated pursuant to the next preceding sentence on the basis of the arithmetic mean of the arithmetic means of the secondary market ask rates, as of approximately 3:30 p.m. (New York City time) on the last Business Days of each of the two weeks preceding the payment date, for the actively traded U.S. Treasury security or securities with a maturity or maturities most closely corresponding to the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Prepaid Cash Flows as at such payment or prepayment date, as reported by three primary United States -21- government securities dealers in New York City of national standing selected in good faith by Operator. "WEIGHTED AVERAGE LIFE TO MATURITY" -- with respect to the Prepaid Cash Flows, as at the payment or prepayment date for the determination of the Treasury Rate, the number of years obtained by dividing the then Remaining Dollar-years of such Prepaid Cash Flows by the principal amount of Notes then being paid or prepaid. The term "REMAINING DOLLAR-YEARS" of the Prepaid Cash Flows means the product obtained by (x) multiplying (A) the principal portion of each Prepaid Cash Flow (including the payment at final maturity), by (B) the number of years (calculated to the nearest one-twelfth) between the time of determination and the date of such Prepaid Cash Flow, and (y) totaling all the products obtained in the computations described in clause (x). 2.16 SPECIAL RIGHTS OF HOLDERS. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Agreement, the Indenture or the Notes relating to the manner and place of payment, all amounts payable to a Holder with respect to any Notes held by such Holder or a nominee for such Holder shall be paid by Indenture Trustee to such Holder (without any presentment thereof and without any notation of the payment being made thereon) by check, duly mailed, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, or delivered to such Holder at the address for payments for such Holder or, if a wire transfer to a bank account is designated in Schedule 1 to the Participation Agreement or in a written notice from such Holder to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the bank so designated for credit to the account and marked for attention as so designated so long as such bank has facilities for the receipt of a wire transfer, or in any other manner or to any other address in the United States as may be designated by such Holder in a written notice from such Holder to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee and Indenture Trustee.

If an Indenture Event of Default exists, Indenture Trustee by written notice to Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee, Partnership and each Beneficiary, may, and upon written request of a Majority In Interest of Holders shall, declare the principal of all the Notes to be due and payable; except that the principal of all Notes, together with accrued interest thereon from the date in respect of which interest was last paid hereunder to the date payment of such principal has been made, and all other accrued and unpaid Secured Obligations will automatically become due and payable without any action of Indenture Trustee or the Holders in the case of an Indenture Event of Default under Section 8.1(e), (f) or (g), unless such Indenture Event of Default with respect to a Beneficiary is remedied or the defaulting Beneficiary transfers its Beneficial Interest pursuant to Section 8.3(e)(i)(4).

If Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or Partnership for any reason fails to execute and deliver such instruments and documents after such request by Indenture Trustee, Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to a judgment for specific performance of the covenants contained in the foregoing sentence, conferring upon Indenture Trustee the right to immediate possession and requiring Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or Partnership, as the case may be, to execute and deliver such instruments and documents to Indenture Trustee. Subject to Sections 8.3(a), 8.3(e) and 8.3(f), Indenture Trustee shall also be entitled to pursue all or any part of the Indenture Estate wherever it may be found and may enter any of the premises of Nonaffiliated Partner Trustee or Partnership or any other Person wherever the Indenture Estate may be or be supposed to be and search for the Indenture Estate and take possession of any item of the Indenture Estate pursuant to this Section 8.3(c).
