The Board is required to make an annual determination of railroad revenue adequacy. A railroad is considered revenue adequate under 49 U.S.C. 10704(a) if it achieves a rate of return on net investment equal to at least the current cost of capital for the railroad industry for 2014, determined to be 10.65% in Railroad Cost of Capital—2014, EP 558 (Sub-No. 18) (STB served August 7, 2015). This revenue adequacy standard was applied to each Class I railroad. Four carriers, BNSF Railway Company, Grand Trunk Corporation, Norfolk Southern Combined Railroad Subsidiaries, and Union Pacific Railroad Company, were found to be revenue adequate for 2014.
