    I'm very pleased with my investments in TRN. It has run up nicely. Here is a breakdown. The $4k and $5k are my basis. The rest are reinvested dividends:

    10/31/2013 1.145 $57.09 $49.86

    total shares: 381.751
    total current value: $20,030.47
    total return: 100%

    In contrast, the S&P500 has returned 20% during the same time period. Score another one for value investing in solid, profitable companies! I also want to thank Warren Buffett here.

    Why? Because when he initially bought into BNI, I looked for value in railroads & the rail supply chain. Everything had already run up in response...except CNI & TRN, prompting me to buy in. I believe my main buys into TRN were at a PE
