AAR issues 2006 edition of 'Railroad Facts' publication



Last year, U.S. railroads set total volume, intermodal traffic and revenue records, reduced train accidents and increased workforces to decade-high levels. For the facts and figures on those accomplishments, check out the 2006 edition of “Railroad Facts,” a publication recently released by the Association of American Railroads.

Published by the association’s policy and economics department, the pocket-sized reference contains more than 80 pages of data on railroads’ finances, operations, plants and equipment, employment and compensation, fuel consumption and cost, and loss and damage. The publication includes statistics for 2005 and selected prior years — some dating as far back as 1929 — as well as profiles of each Class I, Amtrak, and Canadian and Mexican railways.

Non-AAR members can buy one copy of Railroad Facts for $15; two to nine copies for $12 each; and 10 or more copies for $10 each. AAR members can purchase the book for $5 per copy. To order, visit the AAR’s Web site at www.aar.org.
