BNSF's cooperation with customers and economic development agencies led to a $1.8 billion industrial investment in new facilities and expansion projects along the railroad's network. "This is a testament to the economic development potential of rail transportation, its growing importance to the nation's economy, and the commitment of our partner state and local economic development organizations to supporting rail-served industry investment and job creation in their communities," said said Vann Cunningham, BNSF assistant vice president of economic development.
