Rail Traffic Continues to Point Towards Economic Growth

No big change in rail trends this week as the growth continues.  The year over year growth in intermodal came to 4% in the latest reading from AAR.  This brings our 12 week moving average up to 3.9% which is the highest level in over 6 months.  Overall, this indicator has trended very nicely with broader economic growth so if there’s anything to glean from this narrow view here it’s continued growth.  I guess the government shutdown didn’t stop the trains from working….
