A sign of times to come?
Major Powder River Basin coal producer contemplates mine shutdowns
Arch Resources to slash production by half in next two to three years
Union Pacific also service the basin.
Coal traffic has been dropping on the BNSF eastbound and south eastbound trains with power stations and other customers dropping off in the past few years.
Not sure if any of this traffic uses the high line ?
Powder River coal has been in decline since the GFC, but it's coming down from a peak production of nearly 500-million tonnes per annum.
That is a lot of coal in a single area.
Thanks Michael and Sulla.Precision scheduling was introduced into the CSX railroad when a new President was appointed formerly with one of the Canadian Railroads with dramatic results. There is currently a Trains Magazine special issue on the news stands providing a full history of the CSX which incorporates an extensive explanation of Precision Scheduling. I would recommend anybody interested in Precision Scheduling have a look at this particular special issue. I found it very interesting.
