Rail News: Union Pacific Railroad

UP's PRB coal loadings nudged up in November


In November, Union Pacific Railroad loaded 1,040 coal trains in the Southern Powder River Basin (SPRB) compared with 968 trains in November 2010.

The Class I loaded 96.7 percent of National Coal Transportation Association (NCTA) demand, UP officials said in a weekly coal loading performance report.

In the Colorado/Utah region, the railroad loaded 201 coal trains last month versus 189 in November 2010. The Class I loaded 92.6 percent of NCTA demand.

“Some producers in [the region] are experiencing reduced production related to longwall moves,” UP officials said in the report.
