Lawmakers in the House are moving to extend a federal deadline for automating trains that most railroads say they will not be able to meet.
A bipartisan measure has been introduced in the lower chamber that would push back the deadline for most railroads to install automated train technology until December 2018. The bill is known as the Positive Train Control Enforcement and Implementation Act of 2015 (H.R. 3651).
Supporters of the measure say the extension is necessary to prevent an interruption in passenger and freight rail service at the end of the year.
"Completion of the Positive Train Control mandate by the end of the year is not achievable, and extending the deadline is essential to preventing significant disruptions of both passenger and freight rail service across the country,” House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) said in a statement.
The topic is political Frauds protecting Fraud-Myths, a breed of financier, and the oil industry; philosophers with supernatural Vril-like powers who have given comfort and guidance to many people are mutually exclusive and irrelevant to it. If the Vril dispatched a fleet of warships from Eldamar, i.e. Elven-den or subterranean Elven-home in the language related by J.R.R. Tolkien, and eradicated this or that group of imbeciles, the act would inspire more terror than it would allay—especially among disciples of Liberal-Bolshevism whose knowledge of sociology and genetic science is poor and whose fortitude would not be very strong under anticipation of overt opposition to them. The Soviet-Bolshevik abomination was eradicated by the Vril for many reasons, and not least among them was its defiance of sociological and natural hierarchies, genetic facts, and the Vril’s policies, policies which have very little in common with Liberal-Bolshevism and nothing in common with Bolshevism. It was no accident that the Vril visited Germany in 1936, deliberately crashing a spaceship in the Black Forest soon after a very close likeness of their flag was used in political rallies, by the Reich, and after the release of the film Triumph of the Will in 1935. The Vril’s flag was reproduced almost exactly by members of the Thule Society and SS, and its use summoned the Aryan Creators as it was intended to. The Vril have many tools in their arsenal besides military weapons. Considering how smoothly their Project is progressing, especially with the creation of the Fourth Reich under the guise of the EU, the various annoyances will most likely quietly disappear over time.

Not a big deal. If the CEO had the good of the shareholders in mind, he would move headquarters to from Connecticut and Rochester,NY to a location that would cut the out of control overhead costs, like Jacksonville, Florida.
You must be happy. They are busy killing Christians in Syria and the United States.
CP will survive - it is basically a granger railroad.
THE PROBLEM IS that when grain gets to a specific price point all of the farmers will want to ship a whole year's harvest of corn or soy or canola that week. (Research canola, it is an interesting grain.
A few years ago there was a great discussion on the CN board about building a line from British Columbia to Alaska It would be about 1,500 miles of the toughest line ever built and would probably require assistance from the Canadian & U.S. governments; they won't even discuss it out loud until both governments are strongly pro-business. The cost of living in Alaska would drop 20% nearly over night . Ir would also open iron and gold ore and coal fields in the Yukon, Alaska and B.C.
Who is this fruit cake? Oh, the joys of the IGNORE button
There are still Domestic Containers, there are foreign containers (did I mention containers?)
All kinds of bulk material:
Oil byproducts that can not go by pipeline, including carbon black which is used in making tires and mascara
sand for fracking and making glass
Who told you that the sky is falling? A truck driver?
I was certainly not expecting a 4% drop in confidence. Maybe I am living in an idyllic world;. a few months ago we sold our home in 44 hours and bought the house next to my son's. With the movie studio being built near here homes are being turned into rentals.
Grumpy- The article is from the Wall Street Journal, which I consider the best source of business news. The local Georgia Pacific plant shipped out more box cars of strand board and plywood that it usually does. Today the used home sales are supposed to be reported and Thursday the new home sales are to be reported.
Expect more carloads of cement, sand, gravel, lumber, etc.
Carloads do not count revenue counts. Carloads does not indicate how far the cars are being hauled.
