    Although this article points out that rail traffic shows a moderately expanding economy, the trend is important. These links and others note that rail shipments are dropping a lot over the past couple of months compared to last year. Maybe a simple graph could be included since this is a key indicator.

     

    Thanks for the article; great summary as usual.
