On a same-railroad basis, North American traffic increased 1.4%, primarily due to increased coal and coke traffic.

The following highlights relate to North American same-railroad traffic, excluding traffic from P&W, which was acquired on 1 November, 2016.

  • Other commodity group traffic decreased 1120 carloads, or 18.0%, primarily due to decreased Class 1 haulage traffic in G&W’s Southern Region.
