Start Preamble


Surface Transportation Board, DOT.


Proposed railroad cost recovery procedures productivity adjustment.


In a decision served on February 8, 2013, we proposed to adopt 1.009 (0.9% per year) as the measure of average change in railroad productivity for the 2007-2011 (5-year) averaging period. This represents a 0.1% increase over the average for the 2006-2010 period. The Board's February 8, 2013 decision in this proceeding stated that comments may be filed addressing any perceived data and computational errors in our calculation. It also stated that, if there were no further action taken by the Board, the proposed productivity adjustment would become effective on March 1, 2013.


The productivity adjustment is effective March 1, 2013. Comments are due by February 26, 2013.


Send comments (an original and 10 copies) referring to Docket No. EP 290 (Sub-No. 4) to: Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
