Association of American Railroads
The transportation of grain is important business for U.S. freight railroads. In 1990, grain represented 7.1 percent of railroad revenues and 6.8 percent of all originated tons carried by Class I railroads (railroads earning annual revenues of $94.4 million or more).' Railroad transportation of grain in 1990 reached 4.889 billion bushels,' the fifth largest volume ever moved, but 9.5 percent below the 1988 record of 5.4 billion bushels (see pages 8, 10).
Average weekly rail grain traffic volume during 1990 was 94 million bushels, compared to 96.7 million bushels in 1989 and 103.8 million bushels in 1988. Total grain carloads carried by rail in 1990 were 1,437,942, versus 1,479,342 in 1989 and 1,588,171 in 1988.
Total U.S. production of major grains rose to 14.0 billion bushels in 1990, up from 12.9 billion bushels in 1989 (see page 4). Railroads in 1990 transported 34.8 percent of the grain produced in the U.S., compared with 38.8 percent in 1989. While 1990 figures for barge movements of grain are not yet available, barges have experienced an increase in grain traffic in recent years (see page 9).
Rail grain carloadings in the first three quarters of 1991 were roughly eight percent below the same period in 1990. However, a surge of traffic in the fourth quarter brought total 1991 grain car loadings to approximately four percent below 1990 levels.'
Lower exports of U.S. grain in 1991 contributed to the sluggish rail grain traffic. A preliminary estimate of 1991 U.S. grain exports derived from U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics suggests a drop of about five percent from 1990.4
