Rail Industry Trends
The Association of American Railroads (AAR) yesterday released the 2012 edition of Railroad Facts. The reference book features more than 80 pages of facts and statistics for 2011, as well as historical data on railroad finances, operations, plant and equipment, employment and compensation, fuel consumption and costs.

The book also includes a profile of each Class I railroad, Amtrak and the two largest Mexican railroads. It also features "Year in Review" and "Preview of 2012" sections.

In 2011, the rail industry continued to recover from the economic recession, improve performance, increase capital expenditures to $11.6 billion and add employees, the fact book notes.

Copies of the publication are available for $5 for AAR members and $20 for non-members.
