About This Report


The Rail Transportation industry is on the right track, unimpeded by rising fuel prices and environmental concerns that hamper other modes of transportation. The resurgence of the industry's popularity will be supported by a high level of technological change, leading to more powerful and fuel-efficient locomotives. Furthermore, higher production levels and greater consumer spending will support industry demand.

The Rail Transportation industry comprises companies that operate railroads across the United States. This includes large railroads (Class 1 railroads) and regional and local line-haul railroads that carry freight and passengers. This industry does not include scenic and sightseeing rail transportation, street railroads, commuter rail or rapid transit.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
