Rail debate off track

Progressive Rail magazine, May 2013, said Burlington Northern Santa Fe now moves about seven or eight unit trains per day from the Bakken, or 600,000 barrels of oil. And daily volume is projected to be 700,000 barrels by year’s end and to 1 million barrels (current ethanol production capacity) by some point in 2014. BNSF transferred engines from the upper Midwest to increase movement of oil cars from 9,000 in 2009 to 400,000 in 2013.
