AAR reports mixed results on carload traffic, intermodal activity

Freight carload traffic on U.S. railroads dropped 4.1% during the week ending April 28 versus year-ago levels, but intermodal activity climbed 5.5% in the same period, according to the Association of American Railroads. "In 2011, U.S. freight railroads reinvested more than ever before in the national rail network, because they know America's manufacturers, farmers and resource producers need to move freight safely and cost effectively to continue to grow in the years ahead," said John Gray, AAR senior vice president. "Month-to-month trends may vary, but the long-term demand for rail service will certainly rise."
