Description:

Transportation Center Rail Group (Sandhouse Gang) Luncheon Meeting

Anthony B. Hatch, Senior Transportation Analyst &, Financial Consultant, ABH Consulting

As freight traffic on the nation's railroads continues to grow -- the result of the improving economy, systemic transfers from the trucking industry, more crude oil and a record corn crop -- the ability to move traffic efficiently is becoming increasingly challenging. Service delays are creating serious delays for Amtrak; agriculture, coal and other shippers resulting in increasing complaints to Washington,  the Surface Transportation Board and members of Congress. Meanwhile the railroads are making record capital expenditures in order to increase capacity. Tony will summarize all of these factors in his usual cogent manner and give us his vision of what will occur in 2015. It promises to be a most interesting presentation that you will not want to miss.
