Progressive Railroading: November 2016 Editorial Summary
Cover Story:
The CSX of Tomorrow
The CSX of today is struggling to boost business since its traffic and financial fortunes are tied so closely to coal — a commodity that remains in a steep production decline. The new "CSX of Tomorrow" corporate strategy is aimed at maximizing long-term business-building opportunities in the intermodal and merchandise sectors. The strategy calls for realigning the network around high-density, higher-volume routes serving those two markets, continuing to improve service performance, and applying technological innovations to enhance efficiency. Progressive Railroading Managing Editor Jeff Stagl traveled to Jacksonville, Fla., to dissect the CSX of Tomorrow strategy with CEO Michael Ward, CFO Frank Lonegro, CMO Fredrik Eliasson and other top officers.
Q&A with 2016 Railroad Innovator Award Winner Claude Mongeau
In May, Progressive Railroading and RailTrends® named former CN President and CEO Claude Mongeau the 2016 recipient of our annual "Railroad Innovator Award," which recognizes an individual's outstanding achievement in the rail industry. In the late 1990s and through the 2000s, Mongeau helped shape and drive the rail-acquisition strategy that extended CN's North American reach. And during his tenure as CEO, he has instilled a focus on supply-chain collaboration, keeping the Class I on the service-improvement track while the railroad remains razor sharp on the operational execution front. Mongeau, who stepped down from his CEO post June 30 due to health issues, will receive the award during RailTrends® 2016.

NY MTA Four Years after Hurricane Sandy
On Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast and New York City, causing $5 billion in damage to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) alone.

Four years later, those improvements — as well as efforts to strengthen the system's resiliency against future storms — continue.
Surfacing & Tamping Equipment
Tamping and surfacing are integral elements of railroads' maintenance-of-way (MOW) programs. They help roads boost track stability as well as operate more safely and efficiently.
