WHAT'S EXACTLY A CLASS ONE, REGIONAL OR SHORTLINE RAILROAD?
"According to the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB), a Class One railroad was defined as one that generates revenues of $256.4 million or more each year. Class 2 railroads are those with annual revenuesbetween $20.5 million and $256.4 million. Class 3 railroads have earnings of less than $20.5 million."
"The Association of American Railroads (ARR) classifies railroads as Class One, Regional, and Local. The AAR agrees with the STB on what constitutes a Class One railroad. A regional railroad is a line-haul railroad with revenues between $40 million and $256.4 million and with more than 350 miles of track; local railroads include line-haul railroads falling below those criteria and switching and terminal railroads." *
