While heading down in recent years, the capital expenditures outlay made by United States freight railroads, specifically Class Is, still remains very impressive. That was made clear in data issued by the Association of American Railroads (AAR) this week, which put the estimated tally for U.S. railroads investment on maintaining and upgrading “the nation’s private rail network” at $22 billion.

2016 U.S. rail carloads were down 8.2 percent annually at 13,096,860, compared to 2015’s 14,266,012. On the intermodal side, U.S. container and trailer volume decreased 1.6 percent annually to 13,490,491 units compared to 2015’s 13,710,662.
By LM Staff · December 22, 2016
Carloads dropped 2.8 percent annually to 254,700, which was below the week ending December 10 at 259,058, and the week ending December 3 at 274,329.

For the month of November, the AAR reported that U.S. carloads were up 0.4 percent, or 5,406 carloads, at 1,319,008 for its first monthly annual increase in 22 months, going back to January 2015. This is a longer stretch of declines than a 19-month run of downward volumes that occurred during the Great Recession, the AAR said, adding that one factor behind the November increase was easier annual comparisons, coupled with how carloads did not see as much of an October to November decline as usual this year.

By LM Staff · November 11, 2016
Carloads fell 0.4 percent to 271,262, and intermodal containers and trailers were up 1.7 percent at 272,115.
