    Dirt - it is FLAT across Iowa and Nebraska with a gentle rise through most of Wyoming. I used to ride it from Denver to Laramie.

  • The only railroad that you can use for comparison to CSX is Norfolk Southern. Despite the problems the UP has getting through the Rockies, it has over a thousand miles of straight flat running and is significantly larger than the eastern railroads. CSX and NS are nearly the same size and similar running conditions. Both have much almost but not quite redundant track.
    On the CSX map, plot the best route to move traffic from Nashville to Jacksonville. That is hard to do; there are 5 routes that are very similar.

    For those of you who missed this morning's conference call, UNP had a very good quarter, driven in part by increased shipments of sugar beets and beer. Having Coors as a customer must be good for business.

    nolij - Thanks. I found out about a similar deposit in Kentucky, but with sandstone,which, would be a better material for making roads than limestone.

    Correction - several plants will be needed Google Bakken oil field CP rail map

  • unclelarry66 unclelarry66 Jan 18, 2015 10:25 PM Flag

    A fractionator plant will be required. This would apply heat and vacuum to crude oil to suck out the gases (methane, possibly ethane, butane and propane). This would be a partial oil refinery and cost millions of dollars and a couple of years to build.

    CSX does need more powerful, fuel efficient locomotives. If only the EPA would stop interfering with the production of locomotives. How many different horsepower configurations is GE making that is tier 4 - one? and EMD is zero? There is still a market for 4 axle and 6 axle 2,000 HP road switchers, but there is no NEW engine that is tier 4. Yesterday I watched a 4,000 engine hauling 2 boxcars.

  • The crude that is coming from fracking, from what I understand, is much lower in the long chain hydrocarbons that are used for making asphalt. With the lower margins per gallon of crude, has the production from conventional wells cut back to the point that there is a possibility of a shortage in the heavier hydrocarbons that are used for asphalt?

    Are we relying more and more on the crude from Venezuela and Canada for this important product?

    Could this whole market change in the near future?

  • I care about return on assets and return on equity.
    Trying to compare the OR between 2 railroads is foolish, especially if the railroads are in different countries with different accounting standards.

    CP is the point of origination of the crude. CP did not collect the information on the volatility (flash point) of the oil and did not notify the MM&A of the danger of the product that was being carried. This is standard operating procedure on carrying all hazardous materials when there is a railroad interchange. However the fault was not all CP's because it was not tested before being transferred to the tank cars. Also the crude becomes more and more dangerous as it is hauled.
    Consider a bottle filled with Coca-Cola; the carbon dioxide gas in it stays in the coke under pressure until the cap is popped and it fizzes out. The Bakken oil crude is full of methane and ethane gases while underground and pressurized, when it is transferred to a tank car the pressure is reduced and it starts fizzing out the same way into the dome of the car. Results - it is far more explosive than regular crude without the gases in the the dome.

    You should have shorted at 36. You might make 50 cents on a short now.

    The current government might try to put a tariff on imported oil, which could cause some nasty repercussions at the World Trade Organization.

    I thought that the UP was supposed to be picking up some of the traffic moving Bakken oil to refineries in California. That should be good for a few trains a week.

  • Subj: CSX Express - Customers Invest More Than $3.5 Billion on CSX Network in 2014

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - January 5, 2014 - In 2014, CSX and its customers worked together on 107 projects to build or expand facilities on CSX's network and short line partners. CSX customers invested more than $3.5 billion in these projects, which are expected to generate nearly 5,800 new jobs in local communities and approximately 161,000 annual carloads of new business for CSX.

    "In 2014, the bulk of customer investments along our network involved expanding and improving infrastructure for the energy sector. Low natural gas prices are also fueling more downstream projects in the chemicals and fertilizer arena, as well as other manufacturing industries," said Clark Robertson, assistant vice president - regional development. "We've seen investments from both domestic and multinational companies along our rail network, in part due to the CSX network's ability to reach nearly two-thirds of American consumers. We see strong indicators that this robust activity will continue into 2015."

    Over the past decade, CSX customers invested more than $30 billion in rail-served facilities, creating more than 36,000 jobs across the company's 23-state network.

    "State and local economic development agencies also play a pivotal role in supporting economic opportunities for new manufacturing facilities," Robertson said. "We appreciate their assistance in helping our customers access our 21,000 mile rail network and the benefits that freight rail provides, including improving their environmental footprint and helping to reduce wear and tear on public roads."
