Start Preamble


Surface Transportation Board.


Approval of rail cost adjustment factor.


The Board has approved the second quarter 2010 Rail Cost Adjustment Factor (RCAF) and cost index filed by the Association of American Railroads. The second quarter 2010 RCAF (Unadjusted) is 1.060. The second quarter 2010 RCAF (Adjusted) is 0.477. The second quarter 2010 RCAF-5 is 0.452. As part of its March 30, 2010 submission, AAR asks the Board to “correct the productivity calculation for the period 2003-2007,” and requests that the Board recalculate earlier RCAF (Adjusted) and RCAF-5 values that were determined with the 2003-2007 productivity adjustment factor. AAR's additional request will be considered in a separate proceeding.


Effective Date: April 1, 2010.
