    The ROC question is interesting, I'm looking forward to reading your analysis.

    I just started reading The Box by Marc Levinson - it is really good so far and it was referenced quite a bit in Intermodal Railroading by Brian Solomon.

    valimont,

    These areas are relevant but the article was getting long.

    #1 was discussed in a case study in one of the books I used for research:
    ###
    Chicago remains a serious railroad bottleneck. While the [December 2006 BNSF Z-FRSCH1 being examined] arrived at Willow Springs 1 hour, 27 minutes ahead of schedule, it was delayed for more than four hours between Willow Springs and Corwith - a distance of 12.8 miles.
    [Intermodal Railroading by Brian Solomon page 181]
    ###

    Regarding #2 and #3, the West Coast gives shipping companies flexibility when ships are in short supply and they need to get back to Asia faster.

    Cheers,
    Eric

    Cool article.

    I think you meant to put "high" in front of the first ROE in this sentence: It's a gimme that a ROE is good and low ROE is bad.
