AAR releases '07 edition of 'Railroad Facts'



Did you know U.S. railroads set total volume, intermodal traffic and revenue records in 2006? Or that the roads set an all-time-low employee casualty rate and posted fewer train accidents that year?

You will if you obtain the 2007 edition of the Association of American Railroads' (AAR) Railroad Facts. The just-released pocket-sized reference guide contains more than 80 pages of facts and statistics on railroads' finances, operations, plant and equipment, employment and compensation, fuel consumption and cost, and loss and damage. The publication provides data for 2006 and selected prior years as far back as 1929.

Railroad Facts also contains a profile of each Class I, Amtrak and Mexico's two largest railways.

AAR members can obtain the guide for $5 per copy. Non-AAR members can obtain one copy of the guide for $15; two to 10 copies for $12 each; and 10 or more copies for $10 each. Copies are available through the AAR's Web site at www.aar.org.
