The latest annual Railroad Ten-Year Trends contains 168 pages of data on the U.S. freight railroad industry from 2009 through 2018 for most data series, with preliminary 2019 data included for most of them. Sections include U.S. Class I railroad statistics (performance, traffic and revenue, financial, labor, plant and equipment, operations); organizations; glossary; and select information on regional and short line railroads.
AAR releases this publication considerably later than other publications so we can include data from the latest STB Carload Waybill Sample and from the most recent railroad annual reports.
