3 General Characteristics of North American Freight Railroads Vast majority privatelyowned Typically, the same company owns the track and operates trains over it One railroad does not have automatic access to another railroad s tracks Little government funding; income is from freight revenue Don t carry passengers SLIDE 3

4 Total $69 billion 1.8 bil. tons U.S. Railroad Commodity Mix - Minerals & mineral products $4.3 bil., 176 mil. tons Coal $14.7 bil., 727 mil. tons *Some intermodal is also included in individual commodities. Data are Class I railroads only. Source: AAR (FCS) Petrol. & Chemicals $12.7 bil., 258 mil. tons 2012 Intermodal* $14.6 bil., 135 mil. tons Food $5.4 bil., 108 mil. tons Grain - $4.8 bil., 144 mil. tons Lumber & paper $3.8 bil., 59 mil. tons Ores & metals $3.3 bil., 125 mil. tons Autos & auto parts $4.9 bil., 26 mil tons SLIDE 4

10 Total Cost Volume Handled Volume Must be Carefully Managed to Maintain a Fluid Network As volume on rail networks approaches 100% of theoretical capacity, fluidity of the network deteriorates. 0% 75% 100% Theoretical Throughput Capacity If volume offered exceeds 100% of theoretical capacity, maximum throughput capability actually declines. Comfortable capacity is generally about 70% to 80% of maximum theoretical capacity. 0% 75% 100% Theoretical Throughput Capacity Both total and average unit cost increases rapidly after comfortable capacity is exceeded.
