SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under 49 U.S.C 10704(a)(3), 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 (ROI) equal to at least the current cost of capital for the railroad industry. For 2018, this number was determined to be 12.22% in Railroad Cost of Capital—2018, EP 558 (Sub-No. 22) (STB served Aug. 6, 2019). The Board then applied this revenue adequacy standard to each Class I railroad. Three Class I carriers (CSX Transportation, Inc., Soo Line Corporation, and Union Pacific Railroad Company) were found to be revenue adequate for 2018.

The decision in this proceeding is posted at www.stb.gov.
