The Zacks Transportation - Rail industry is benefiting from significantly improved volumes, thanks to an uptick in economic activities. However, weakness in volumes in certain commodity groups is a near-term challenge for the industry. High fuel expenses due to rising fuel prices further dull the prospects of the railroad industry.

Despite adversities, companies like Union Pacific Corporation UNP, CSX Corporation CSX and Norfolk Southern Corporation NSC are expected to gain on expectations of continued improvement in volumes as the economy gathers momentum.
