Formerly Cars Online, Operational Cars Online is now defined as: “A car level metric representing the number of cars on the KCS network that are not at a customer’s location.”
Gross Velocity, formerly Train Speed, is now: “A train level metric measuring the average velocity of a train between its origin and destination stations, calculated as the sum of the miles traveled divided by the sum of total transit hours.” Transit hours, KCS noted, are measured by calculating the difference between a train’s origin departure and destination arrival date and times broken down by segment across the train route. KCS added that this metric includes all time spent at intermediate locations between a train origin and destination (including all crew changes, terminal dwell, delays, and incidents).
