    Freight traffic still shows no signs of growth in the week ending April 16, 2016, as carloads and intermodal units were both down nearly 13% and 7.5%, respectively, the Association of American Railroads (AAR) reported on April 20, 2016.


    For this week, total U.S. weekly rail traffic was 499,779 carloads and intermodal units, down 10.1% compared with the same week last year.
    Total carloads for the week ending April 16 were 240,462 carloads, down 12.9% compared with the same week in 2015, while U.S. weekly intermodal volume was 259,317 containers and trailers, down 7.4% compared to 2015.

    Government is a DISEASE - FREEDOM is the CURE
    Integrity is doing the right thing when no one else is watching.
    “Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth — more than ruin, more even than death. Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habits; thought is anarchic and lawless, indifferent to authority, careless of the well-tried wisdom of the ages. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid … Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.”Bertrand Russell, Why Men Fight
