Freight Rail Helps Power the World

 

America’s coal helps power homes and build cities around the world, particularly in Europe and Asia. In 2008, rail carried more than 68 million tons of coal to U.S. ports and border crossings. Between production challenges overseas and economic growth in Asia, coal exports are expected to exceed 15–year record highs, with many of those exports beginning their journey by rail.
