More than enough hot air

B

y the time you are reading this, either in print or digital, the national conventions of our two major political parties will be just days away. It’s safe to say that we already know who the nominees for President of the United States will be. It’s a given that the 2016 race will be nasty, even stomach-turning, filled with personal attacks, twisting of facts, clever fabrications and outright lies—just the sort of thing voters need to make an informed, intelligent decision about who should be the next “Leader of the Free World,” right? Hence the reference to hot air, which ties in nicely with our feature story on switch heaters (p. 25). Admittedly, I had a little fun composing the headline and subtitles. Hopefully, the four major suppliers covered—Hovey Industries, Railway Equipment Company, Rails Company and Pintsch Tiefenbach—will understand my sometimes flagrant desire for playing with words. Indeed, the railroads are now getting their winter operating and maintenance plans in place. And American voters are bracing themselves for a real snow job. As Groucho Marx famously said a long, long time ago, “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” Groucho also said, “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” No doubt, those words of wisdom still apply today, especially to politics, as does this Grouchoism: “He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot. But don’t let that fool you. He is an idiot.” For the record, the only leader in which I have faith these days is New York Air Brake’s Locomotive Engineer Assist Display and Event Recorder, which does a masterful job of helping the people at the throttle make informed, intelligent decisions about how to operate their train safely and efficiently. Speaking of applying the wrong remedies to an incorrect diagnosis, we have the 2

Federal Railroad Administration’s attempt to mandate two-person train crews. As Association of American Railroads chief executive Ed Hamberger said at our Rail Insights conference, “We don’t have data to suggest it’s safer to have two people in a cab rather than one. Particularly galling to my members: This regulation comes after PTC, which is a good thing, and designed to override human error. Yet the Transportation Department is now asking Congress for $3.9 billion for development of driverless trucks. It makes no sense. We will be unveiling a study shortly, just looking at the numbers being requested with these FRA regulations. We’re estimating 25 million hours of paperwork, at a cost of $1.3 billion.” Two people in the cab did not prevent the tragic June 28 head-on collision of two BNSF intermodal trains on the Transcon near Panhandle, Tex., that claimed three lives. PTC, which is not yet operational on that section of railroad, would have overridden the human error that allegedly caused the wreck. I think we can safely deduce that trains can be operated safely with one person in the cab and PTC. Ed Hamberger has been working Capitol Hill for years, and very effectively at that. He and Railway Supply Insitute President Tom Simpson (both of whom participated in Rail Insights) are among the many experienced voices of reason and common sense in our industry. They understand that our government often works in ways that don’t make sense, or are counterproductive. They know how to deal with this stuff. But I believe that they, too, are thoroughly frustrated with the current state of this country’s political affairs and are having a tough time figuring out where things may be headed and how the rail industry may or may not be negatively affected. That’s what happens when hot, polluted air is blowing in your face.

Industry Outlook NYS&W is one of two railroads partnering with NYSERDA on idle-reduction technology.

Cleaner, greener New York railroads The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) have partnered with the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern Railroad (MHWA) of Utica and the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway (NYSW) of Cooperstown on obtaining locomotive idle-reduction technology. The projects advance the state’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030 under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy. MHWA and NYSW are obtaining APUs (auxiliary power units) that heat and circulate diesel engine coolant water to keep the engine block warm and enable the engine to be shut down when the locomotive is not in service.

Hotstart, Inc., is supplying the APUs for this application. MHWA is acquiring two units; NYSW, four. NYSERDA told Railway Age that APU equipment from Power Drives, Inc., IMPCO Technologies Canada, Inc. and StarClass, Inc. are also approved for the program. “Idling diesel engines produce unnecessary particulate matter, greenhouse gases and toxic air contaminants, and DEC is proud to help advance projects like this to reduce public exposure to diesel emissions,” said Acting DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos. “This technology for short line diesel locomotives improves air quality for the communities surrounding these locations and saves fuel cost for the companies, and is yet another example

of the importance of Governor Cuomo’s REV program, and the benefits that occur when government and business work together to achieve environmental goals.” Use of APUs supported by state and federal funds have been on the rise in many areas. NYSERDA, though, noted that idle-reduction technology is more commonly employed by Class I railroads. “Due to limited funds, smaller companies such as short lines have been reluctant to install [APUs], which cost between $25,000 and $30,000 each,” the agency said. “These projects will demonstrate the financial benefits of this technology to encourage similar investments by other small railroad companies. This announcement supports short line railroads as they begin to transition to more modern and efficient locomotives in an effort to lower carbon emissions and reduce their costs.” “This project complements work in development under NYSERDA’s Clean Energy Fund to accelerate the movement toward an energy-efficient transportation system that enhances the quality of life in communities,” the agency said. “The transportation sector accounts for 40% of fossil-fuel carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in New York State, where 33 Class II and Class III railroads operate on approximately half of the state’s 1,600-mile rail network. “For large areas of rural and smalltown America, short line railroads are the only way shippers can stay connected to the national railroad network, helping businesses and employment remain local, according to the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association.”

Czech Škoda establishing U.S. subsidiary Škoda Transportation of the Czech Republic is launching a subsidiary company in the United States to sell light rail vehicles and streetcars in North America.

business development. Prior to that, Ellis worked for Dellner Couplers, Sweden, as North American sales manager, and for Voith. Škoda has supplied streetcars to Portland and Tacoma and has transferred technology to United Streetcar, U.S., to enable it to build streetcars for Tuscon. Škoda Electric has also supplied 330 trolleybuses to Dayton

and San Francisco, and is modernizing 32 trolleybuses for Boston. “Our goal is to create a fully fledged U.S. base consisting of business development, technical department, purchasing and project management through to production,” Ellis says. “Establishment of Škoda Transportation USA is the first step in a planned expansion into the North American market.”

Update Supply Briefs Jamaican government turns to Herzog for rail revival Jamaica Minister of Transport and Works Michael Henry told the country’s legislature last month that the government is holding discussions with Herzog regarding the possibility of establishing a public-private partnership (PPP) to resurrect part of the island’s passenger railway network. After decades of decline, Jamaica Railway Corporation (JRC) withdrew all remaining services in 1992. Passenger services resumed between May Pen and Linstead in April 2011 but the revival was brief, and operations ceased once more in August 2012. In 2013 two companies submitted unsolicited proposals for a PPP to rebuild and operate part of the network. Discussions on the proposals are being facilitated by the Ministry of Transport and Mining and the Development Bank of Jamaica.

Railroads create $274 billion in economic activity: AAR

T

he Association of American Railroads (AAR) released on June 13, 2016 a “State of the Industry Report” featuring new research from Towson University Regional Economic Studies Institute (RESI). The report finds that spending by the seven U.S. Class I railroads created $274 billion in economic activity, generated nearly $33 billion in state and federal tax revenues and supported nearly 1.5 million jobs nationally in 2014 alone. AAR says the report is the first of its kind to quantify the impact of investments by Class I railroads with U.S. operations on the overall economy. Several key points highlighted by AAR: • Spending: $28 billion in investments by freight railroads in 2014 is more than half of all federal spending on transit formula grants, federal highway construction programs and airport improvement programs combined. Railroads invested $30 billion in 2015 and since 2011 have averaged $26 billion annually. AAR President and CEO Edward R. Hamberger said the railroads would be far less able to make these investments without the existing “balanced regulatory environment,” which “should not be changed.” • Output: $274 billion in output—or

goods and services produced—is nearly the GDP of Finland, according to International Monetary Fund data. • Jobs: One job in the freight rail industry supports nine others touched by the industry, including retail, manufacturing and transportation and warehousing. Class I railroads employed 166,000 people in 2014, which translates to nearly 1.5 million indirect and induced jobs (created or supported jobs). • Taxes: The rail industry’s state and local tax generation is greater than the taxes collected by 30 individual states in 2014. “Railroads maintain high paying jobs and create numerous jobs in related industries that collectively spur significant economic activity,” said Dr. Daraius Irani, lead researcher and Chief Economist at RESI. “Significant capital investments by railroads and the steady presence of a coast-to-coast network that can reliably deliver goods at a cost effective rate generates a ripple effect seen in this study. Railroad spending means job growth, dollars to communities and global competitiveness.” The Brookings Institution, Competitive Enterprise Institute, the University of Oregon and R Street also provided perspectives in the report.

Update New from Rockwell Collins: Shared-network PTC platform Rockwell Collins last month launched ARINC RailwayNetSM, described as “a hosted network and messaging platform for passenger and freight railroads” for Positive Train Control, and “designed to increase safety and reliability in the railroad industry and to help railroads meet the PTC requirements mandated by the Rail Safety Improvement Act (RSIA) of 2008.” In particular, the technology is designed to assist Class II and III and passenger railroads that may not have the same resources as Class I railroads to implement PTC. “ARINC RailwayNet leverages Rockwell Collins’ expertise to create a common communication infrastructure for all railroads,” said Denny Lengyel, Vice President, Surface Transportation Systems and Critical Infrastructure, Information Management Services (IMS) for

Rockwell Collins. “ARINC RailwayNet provides the network connections and office applications required to exchange critical information among Class I railroads and their partner short line and commuter railroads. With RailwayNet, Rockwell Collins is helping short line and commuter railroads meet the PTC

mandate efficiently, cost-effectively and securely.” To that end, Rockwell Collins is utilizing a $4.9 million Federal Railroad Administration grant to help implement ARINC RailwayNet. The FRA grant is being used to provide technical support to participating short line and

ARINC RailwayNet is currently available on a subscription basis as hosted SaaS (software as a service) and IaaS (infrastructure as a service) solutions. PTC messaging from the back office to the locomotive through VHF, cellular and WiFi is available now, “and additional value-added services will be available in the future,” the company said. Lengyel and Senior Vice President IMS Dave Nieuwsma explained how Rockwell Collins has been involved with the evolution of PTC since its beginning as ATCS (Advanced Train Control System) more than 30 years ago. Lengyel is a veteran of PTC

development at ARINC, having participated in ATCS specification development with the AAR in the late 1980s, as well as with CSX’s CBTM (Communications-Based Train Management) and IDOT PTC programs in the 1990s and 2000s, prior to RSIA in 2008. Today, The Rockwell Collins information management, command and control and network solutions are used throughout the rail industry. The IMS division was created when Rockwell Collins acquired ARINC in 2013. ARINC RailwayNet includes the ATCS data links that were incorporated into PTC. “It’s built on the same Rockwell Collins mission-critical infrastructure relied upon by aviation customers around the world for more than 80 years,” the company noted. The biggest challenge was developing the networking architecture. The four largest Class I railroads—CSX, Norfolk Southern, BNSF and Union

Pacific—created a “Federated Network” to support their interoperability requirements and associated electronic communications connectivity. “ARINC RailwayNet minimizes the complexity and risk of the nationwide Federated Network by providing smaller railroads with access to Federated Network connectivity through a hosted service,” the company said. “Rockwell Collins developed ARINC RailwayNet to serve as a node on the Federated Network and enable the flow of PTC messages between Class I, commuter, short line and regional railroad operations.” Rockwell Collins worked closely with the ASLRRA PTC Steering Committee, responding to an RFP for a hosted service, as well as with AAR and APTA. PTC, remarked Lengyel and Nieuwsma, “has not been a sprint. It’s been a marathon,” and the extended Dec. 31, 2018 deadline “is closer than one might think.”

Update CTA receives FTA Triennial Review perfect score

For the first time, the Federal Transit Administration has given the Chicago Transit Authority a perfect score on its Triennial Review covering the years 2013 through 2015 and found no deficiencies across multiple categories and departments. A perfect review of “zero findings of

deficiencies” is the highest score attainable. The FTA awarded CTA a Certificate of Excellence following a review process that included a team of FTA auditors conducting site visits and completing a review of CTA procedures and policies in 17 key areas incorporating safety and security,

accessibility, finance, maintenance and the agency’s public input process. “The FTA’s review is testament to the attention being paid by all CTA employees at all levels of the organization to the federal regulations mandated by the FTA,” said CTA President Dorval R. Carter, Jr. “It is very rare, especially for a transit agency of this size, to get a perfect score.” Transit agencies that receive federal funding undergo an FTA review every three years. The review analyzes overall adherence to and compliance with FTA requirements, including the agency’s program, policies, procedures, administrative controls and financial management systems to determine how closely the agency is following statutory and regularly requirements. The FTA issues findings for areas where it determines compliance is not up to standards.

Rail Systems & Vehicle Engineering PTC hosting, Herzog-style Herzog Technologies, Inc. (HTI) has rolled out Herzog PTC Hosting, described as “providing PTC messaging capabilities, back office SaaS (software as a service) and a variety of other PTC services to help railroads meet PTC requirements without large up-front capital investments or lengthy setup timelines.” Herzog PTC Hosting “provides full Interoperable Train Control Messaging (ITCM) connected to the Interoperable Train Control federated network at both the MPLS and messaging layers,” HTI said. “Herzog PTC Hosting also includes the Herzog PTC Back Office Server (BOS) and Herzog Key Exchange Server (KES) software running on the HTI infrastructure.” HTI describes the service as “Back Office software agnostic, able to run software from any combination of vendors to support each customer’s unique needs.” HTI designed and implemented Herzog PTC Hosting in partnership with Red Hat Consulting, Meteorcomm Communications and other technology partners. “The idea of ‘hosting’ started as a solution to an internal problem,” said HTI Vice President of Rail Systems Jim Hanlon. “We maintain several railroads, and realized the cost of PTC messaging and the back office software, let alone staffing, would be a big financial hit to our customers. From there, we realized this internal solution could be applied externally and help railroads we don’t currently maintain. Every hosted railroad gets the benefits at a fraction of what it would cost them to do it individually.” HTI explained that its hosting infrastructure “is located in geographically diverse, state-of-the art commercial data centers. Real-time system monitoring, configuration management, and a test lab increase the reliability of the HTI solution. Herzog PTC Hosting is federated as a Tier 1 ITCM peer under the HTIX SCAC.”

Labor’s not-so-smart gamble on FRA

N

ews items: A convoy of selfdriving trucks recently traversed Europe. Driverless trucks are undergoing public-road testing in California and Nevada. And Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx supports development of vehicles “that can drive themselves better than a human.” Baby boomers may be skeptical, but not digital-native millennials. Already suffering sharp declines in coal traffic, railroads soon will encounter the challenge of driverless trucks and their substantially lower operating costs, putting greater pricing pressure on commodities fungible between rail and truck. How successfully railroads confront this looming truck assault with their own productivity enhancements foreshadows the industry’s financial health. Against this backdrop, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) proposes banning one-person train crews even as it oversees a $10 billion unfunded mandate that railroads install Positive Train Control (PTC) technology designed to prevent train accidents most associated with human behavior, and whose development has been enthusiastically supported by rail labor. Where PTC is proven to render a second crew member redundant, sound economics and the efficiency mandate of National Transportation Policy dictate the redundancy be removed. Bewildering is that the FRA admits lacking supporting data to justify a twoperson crew mandate. The chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says there is no evidence two-person crews are safer than a single locomotive engineer, eliciting from the FRA a concession that “it is possible that one-person crews have contributed to the [rail industry’s] improving safety record.”

The FRA two-person crew mandate was hatched by a former FRA administrator previously employed by the Transportation Division of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART-TD). Until then, the FRA treated crew size as a labor issue to be shaped by collective bargaining. Not all rail-labor officers are fellow travellers with uncertain government fiat, preferring iron-clad, mutually negotiated contract protections—mindful that the pending FRA minimum crew mandate risks rejection by courts,

Labor’s outsized wager rejects the time-tested labor maxim, “When you get a good deal, take it.” scrapping by a Republican-controlled Congress, or eventual repeal by a less labor-friendly FRA administrator. History supports a collective bargaining strategy. In 2001, SMART-TD predecessor United Transportation Union convinced its members to accept locomotive remote control technology in yard switching, explaining the futility of fighting vs. collectively bargaining for improved wages and career-long income protection in return. The alternative to a mutually beneficial agreement is the risk of losing the fight, with a vengeful management dictating terms. An FRA two-person crew mandate may sound shrewd today, but lurking

are dubious courts, an inhospitable congressional majority, or a less friendly future FRA administrator. John Babler, a former vice president of SMART-TD—still a senior officer and a perceptive student of labor-management history—understands how obduracy often backfires on workers. He led contract negotiations with BNSF to permit oneperson crews on track where PTC is installed, but in exchange for improved wages and career-long income protection for those adversely impacted. The agreement was voted down, leading to FRA’s proposed two-person crew mandate. “It would be foolish to think railroads are going to spend $10 billion on PTC and not get some sort of crew-consist relief,” Babler said, even before the collapse of coal traffic and driverless trucks appeared in the railroads’ rearview mirror. Babler shares broad vision and practical wisdom with former United Auto Workers President Ron Gettlefinger, credited with helping save the U.S. Big Three during the auto industry’s 20082010 meltdown. “We had already done a lot of things under the contracts, and we were asked to do more. We stepped up and did more … to save the industry,” Gettlefinger said. PTC implementation coincides with the retirement of the majority of conductors protected by a previous collectively bargained crew-consist agreement. Absent a new protective agreement, thousands of conductors will be in the cross-hairs should the FRA mandate be dashed by courts, Congress or a future FRA administrator. Labor’s outsized wager—that the FRA’s proposed mandate succeeds long-term—rejects the time-tested labor maxim, “When you get a good deal, take it.”

Midyear Report

Managing the downturn

It’s tough staying focused in tough times. In the midst of a fairly serious down cycle, the industry is toughing it out.

A

By WILLIAM C. VANTUONO, Editor-in-Chief; with JASON SEIDL, Wall Street Contributing Editor

sk most railroaders or suppliers the question, “how is business?” and the answer will invariably be “slow.” Service has improved, along with average train velocity, but that’s because there are fewer trains in operation. One need only look at all the parked locomotives and cars around the country or read the latest report on headcount reductions to see what’s going on. Most industry observers don’t expect to see any lasting improvement in traffic volume until the latter half of 2017. It will take even longer than that for the freight car market to recover. Demand for new equipment “has weakened significantly in this year’s opening quarter, and backlogs have dropped to only 95,038 cars,” according to the most recent report issued by Economic Planning Associates. The shrinking backlog represents 5.6 quarters (roughly 17 months, through November 2017) of assemblies at current rates. At the same time, the industry is dealing with thorny regulatory issues, not the least of which is the Federal Railroad 22 Railway Age July 2016

Administration’s attempt to mandate two-person crews. “Our position is that we don’t have data to suggest it’s safer to have two people in a cab rather than one,” said Association of American Railroads President and CEO Ed Hamberger at Railway Age’s Rail Insights conference. “Particularly galling to my members: This regulation comes after PTC, which is a good thing, and designed to override human error. Yet the Transportation Department is now asking Congress for $3.9 billion for development of driverless trucks. It makes no sense. We will be unveiling a study shortly, just looking at the numbers being requested with these FRA regulations. We’re estimating 25 million hours of paperwork, at a cost of $1.3 billion.” Does anything the government attempts to do these days make sense? The June 28 fatal head-on collision of two BNSF intermodal trains on BNSF’s CTC-equipped Transcon near Panhandle, Tex., (Kansas Division, Panhandle Subdivision) drives


home Hamberger’s point. Both trains had two crewpersons in the cab. PTC is not yet operational on that section of the railroad. Preliminary information indicates one of the trains ran past a stop signal. PTC, regardless of whether there were one or two people in the locomotive cab, would have prevented the collision. Both crewmembers operating the train that allegedly violated the stop signal could have failed to properly operate that train. Any questions? Carbuilder Consolidation?

In the current down market, a “strong case” can be made for consolidation in the freight car building sector, according to Cowen and Company analyst Matt Elkott. “Builders could revisit mergers as a strategic step to soften the blow of the extended contraction of proprietary backlog projects,” says Elkott in a report titled Consolidation Could Make Sense Now. It’s described as “a deep-dive report addressing potential combinations, their strategic and financial sense, and likely multiples.” Among the carbuilders referenced are FreightCar America, The Greenbrier Cos., ARI (American Railcar Industries) and National Steel Car. For FreightCar America, “the transition toward a diversified product portfolio is a sound strategy, but we believe it presents unique challenges in a down cycle,” notes Elkott. “We’ve identified bright spots in the backlog that could, among other things, make the company attractive to an acquirer. Our valuation study suggests upside—just not enough to warrant a more constructive view at this point.” FreightCar America “is well-established, with a rich history,” says Elkott. “In the near to intermediate term, however, it faces the uneasy task of further solidifying its competitive position in markets outside coal railcars during a downturn. Our proprietary backlog forecast, which is the culmination of an extensive study of demand elements and collaboration with four Cowen research teams, projects a more prolonged but less steep contraction than in the two worst down cycles of the past couple of decades. We are projecting FreightCar America’s share of the industry backlog to decline slightly over the next several quarters, but it could grow again, longer-term. The possibility of FreightCar America attracting acquirer interest is one source of potential upside to our near-term neutral view, which is otherwise based on existing fundamentals and organic prospects.” ARI “may be overexposed to two broad railcar types, including energy-related equipment, but we think further stock price decline is limited for this quality builder,” Elkott says. “Indeed, we believe the industry headwinds are largely reflected in current investor expectations. The leasing business should provide some stability, and valuation appears fair at current levels. ARI’s narrow product offering relative to larger peers limits its ability to benefit from the few emerging favorable demand trends we have identified for the industry in the intermediate term. These include gondolas for shipment of aggregates, and boxcar replacement. While pockets of opportunity exist within the company’s two primary railcar types, they are outweighed, at least in the near term, by challenges posed by weak demand for energyrelated equipment.”

“That said, ARI’s higher leasing component, relative to peers, should limit margin compression,” says Elkott. “Indeed, as manufacturing operating income has declined steadily throughout the downturn, leasing operating income has remained much more stable, with the two coming in almost in line with each other in 1Q16. Our assumption for nearly 300 bps operating margin compression is less severe than what we have modeled for some peers, although largely in line with the group average.” Greenbrier, notes Elkott, would be a good merger partner for FreightCar America or ARI. As well, ARI and FreightCar America would be a good combination. “We view a Greenbrier/FreightCar America merger as the most complementary,” he says. “Our channel checks suggest that FreightCar America’s backlog, while not without risks, contains a material portion of aggregate gondolas, a promising growth area in which Greenbrier does not have a strong competitive advantage.” “ARI could also take part in a combination,” says Elkott. “The possibility of ARI being party to a transaction is one source of upside to our near-term neutral view, which is otherwise based on existing fundamentals and organic prospects. We would view a Greenbrier/ARI or an ARI/ FreightCar America merger as complementary. We believe both combinations would significantly broaden ARI’s product portfolio and boost its market share. ARI’s narrower product mix presents unique challenges for the company during an industry contraction. We would view an acquisition of FreightCar America by Greenbrier as one of the more likely transactions due to its complementary nature and immediate accretion. Other combinations could include a GreenbrierNational Steel Car deal, an acquisition of FreightCar America by ARI, a private equity transaction involving FreightCar America, or FreightCar America taking itself private. As far as outside interest, we would not rule out that the low valuations, coupled with the long-term intrinsic value inherent in the railcar manufacturing business and its supplychain importance to the industrial economy, would attract conglomerates or financial investors.” Rebel With A Cause

The following is by Railway Age Wall Street Contributing Editor Jason Seidl: The shoe was finally on the other foot, and I was the one asking the financial questions rather than being the one striving to provide the answers. I had the honor of sharing the stage at Railway Age’s Rail Insights conference with Gilbert Lamphere, Founder and Chairman of MidRail Corp., former Chairman of the Illinois Central Railway, Co-Founder of MidSouth Rail, former board member of Canadian National Railway, CSX Corp., and Florida East Coast Railway. Lamphere had strong opinions about the Class I railroads’ opportunities and how they present themselves to the financial industry. I broke the ice by asking Lamphere a very basic question: “Are railroads a good investment?” After discussing all of the topline headwinds the industry is currently facing he pointed out that he believed there were significant cost savings July 2016 Railway Age 23


Midyear Report

opportunities remaining in the industry. And by significant I mean tens of billions of dollars. In his view, all railroads should utilize the precision railroading approach to operations that Canadian National has long employed. His advocating for full scale adoption of precision railroading should come as no surprise to those who know him as he is the one who put Hunter Harrison, the Godfather of precision railroading, in charge of the Illinois Central. This will not come easy for the railroads as they will be attempting to realize these cost savings during a major shift in business mix for most. It was not too long ago when King Coal accounted for as much as 30% of the revenue pie for some railroads. The swift and rapid descent in both domestic and export coal demand has forced many railroads to reevaluate their long-term plans. Moare now focused on growing their intermodal product offerings. Intermodal demand appears to have some near-term challenges given readily available truck capacity, low diesel prices and a sluggish economy. However, over the longer term rails should be able to gain market share. Lamphere points out, however, that swapping intermodal traffic for coal traffic is hardly an apples for apples trade. One could argue that incremental intermodal traffic comes onto a train at very high margins. The question Lamphere poses “what would a railroad’s operating ratio be if all of its traffic was intermodal?” is a very relevant one in our mind. Clearly the rails need to improve the profitability of intermodal, especially since it is becoming more and more important to the industry. It also underscores the aforementioned need to bring costs out of the industry via operational improvements. Turning his attention to present day matters, Lamphere did take the industry to task for how they present their earnings to investors and how they use their cash. His opening salvo on how the industry inflates their earnings was hard hitting and caught some investors and industry insiders in the room a bit off guard. In his view the Class I railroads overestimate their reported earnings by as much as 30%! His calculations 24 Railway Age July 2016

come from his belief that the capital expenditures the railroads make should be accounted for as an expense due to their largely reoccurring nature. If investors were to come around to his way of thinking rail valuations would undoubtedly suffer. Hence we decided to consult an expert to shed some light on the subject to see if companies such as railroads are properly accounting for capital expenditures. According to noted Syracuse University accounting professor Susan Albring, “Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) allows companies to record a capital expenditure as an asset on the balance sheet and spread the expense over its useful life through depreciation. This treatment increases assets on the balance sheet, which companies tend to favor and decreases expenses, thus increasing net income. The distinction between an asset and an expense can be blurred and requires a lot of judgment. GAAP requires that a purchase have a useful life of at least one year to be considered an asset. Railroad companies thus are able to capitalize only those assets that meet this test. GAAP also allows companies to capitalize equipment improvements if it is not normal maintenance.” This is where Lamphere is likely making his point, as roughly 60%-plus of all railroad capital spending is deemed maintenance capital by the industry. However, if the capital improvement extends the useful life of an asset, then it can be capitalized according to GAAP. Hence the industry appears to be doing nothing wrong in our eyes and should go on treating capital expenditures as such unless there is a change to accepted accounted principals. Aside from how to account for capital expenditures, Lamphere also focused on how the railroads spend their free cash and “nearly free” cash. With many railroads now spending more than their free cash flow to buy back their shares, he took the chance to state that the rails have gotten investors “addicted” to the practice. It is hard to disagree with that as it is indeed occurring and in many cases is responsible for 1-2% of earnings growth at the railroads. Given how cheap debt currently is, and how the rating agencies are treating (dare I say relatively accepting of) the practice, it is hard to see the railroads pulling back the reins on their respective share repurchase programs anytime soon. That said, we believe Lamphere may be on to something as this type of redistribution has its limits, especially if interest rates rise over time. Some in the audience who listened to Lamphere may have been taken aback by his controversial thoughts on the rail space. Some may have even walked away with the thought that he had a decidedly negative outlook on the space. Upon closer examination, we find that nothing could be further from the truth. His company, MidRail Corp., is an operating company created to manage rail assets. Although they have yet to add their first asset, MidRail is actively looking for smaller, niche and below-the-radar targets in the rail space that produce growth. As he grows his company he may even decide to take it public one day. Given his candid and blunt commentary about the rail space today, investors may be in for a bit of culture shock. RA

M/W: switch Heaters

Hovey Industries HELLFIRE installation on OCTranspo, Ottawa.

When hot air is a good thing

By WILLIAM C. VANTUONO, Editor-in-Chief

Ice and snow throwing a deep freeze on train movements? These switch heaters are designed to keep things warm and dry. 

Hovey Industries

T

he 2016 Presidential election aside, there are few things more important to a railroad than hot air when winter sets in, and ice and snow tentacles grab hold of switches, threatening to stop trains in their tracks. It may be summer, but the railroads are already preparing for what promises to be another tough winter. Battling Mother Nature’s unpredictable son, Jack Frost, to keep trains rolling safely in freezing conditions requires a combination of maintenance and operation skills, and technology. Switch heaters are perhaps the single-most important technology, especially on high-density railroads. Such suppliers as Hovey Industries,

Rails Co., Railway Equipment Co., Pintsch Tiefenbach and CCI Thermal Technologies are providing equipment that not only does an effective job of keeping switches (turnouts) clear of ice and snow, but offer fully automatic operation and remote monitoring/ self-diagnostics. Hovey: Go to HELLFIRE

As a Canadian company, Hovey Industries Inc. has acquired a considerable amount of experience with snow clearing devices working in extreme cold. Hovey Switch Heaters, the company notes, feature high efficiency blue flame burner technology. Its Horizontal Air Curtains keep the line-of-sight on hot

bearing scanners clear. Hovey’s HELLFIRE 400 switch heater is designed to clear ice and snow from switches with no more than 40 feet of moving rail between heel and switch point. Output-rated at 200,000 to 400,000 BTUs/hour, it runs on propane or natural gas. Three standard duct system configurations are available: 131-, 140-, and 155-inch clearances. The fan is direct-driven at 3,450 RPM and delivers 1,500 SCFM (standard cubic feet per minute). The HELLFIRE 400’s blower, intake and ductwork are constructed of 14-gauge galvanized steel. The combustion chamber and transition duct are constructed of stainless steel. The July 2016 Railway Age 25

direct-drive centrifugal fan features matched and balanced motor and impeller sets. Hovey employs a direct spark ignition system with a thermostatically limited track-duct nozzle outlet temperature of 340-380 degrees F. The HELLFIRE 400 also features remote operation, remote run indication, force-off provided by a normally closed contact, and a programmable delay ON timer of 0 to 99 seconds that allows staggered startup of a series of heaters. The blower motor is equipped with a magnetic contactor and thermal overload protection. The HELLFIRE’s ignition features an air pressure (flow) switch that’s disabled until adequate air pressure is developed. It’s high-temperaturelimited, so in the event of thermostat failure and nozzle temperatures exceeding 420 degrees F, the heater is shut off to avoid tie damage. Heater operation is restored by manual reset. If a loss of flame occurs, the ignition module closes the gas valve, provided that after a six-second ignition trial period of 6 seconds no flame is sensed, or if flame detection is lost for more than 1 second during normal operation. Hovey’s Horizontal Air Curtain (HAC) System produces a high-velocity curtain of ambient air to prevent ice and snow accumulation. A blower feeding duct mounted below the rails delivers the air to the point-end of the switch mechanism through nozzles mounted within the switch. Two 130-mph streams of air prevent snow and freezing rain from entering the 26

mechanism. A “Quiet HAC” version with a reduced noise level of 5 decibels is available for applications in residential areas. Hovey’s Tie Duct is a hollow, thermally and electrically insulated structural tie capable of carrying heavy axle loads and delivering hot or cold air to a Switch Heater or HAC duct system. It can remain in place during automated tamping, eliminating the need remove cross-ducts for switch tamper. A thermally insulated Tie Duct, Hovey says, improves switch-clearing performance by delivering up to 18% more heat to the switch points. RECo: Get Caught in the Rail-NET™

Railway Equipment Company’s (RECo) line of Magnum® switch heaters are available as gas- or electric-fired hot air blowers, cold air blowers and electric rail switch heaters. All are compatible with Rail-NET™ remote monitoring and iHab™ software, increasing efficiency and functionality. RECo’s newest gas-fired heaters are described as “integrated, simple-tooperate and troubleshoot.” Standard features include CSA (Canadian Standards Association) listing in the U.S. and Canada; 30- and 66-inch height above foundation; stainless steel burner; galvanized nine-foot steel tie duct; two point nozzles; optional AC drive for less strain on the electrical grid; three-phase motor; electrical isolation that prevents damage from lightning strikes; robust over-temperature device that prevents tie fires and is more capable of standing

up to harsh environments; duct nozzles; pressure switch that verifies airflow during startup with no moving parts for less maintenance; rodent screens; optional Rail-NET™, allowing access to equipment status and data, from any location 24/7, and iHAB™ software. Remote monitoring and control of switch heaters via RECo’s proprietary Sno-NET® software “further increases switch heater reliability and efficiency while reducing associated operating costs,” the company says. “Ductwork is available in different sizes and styles to use with a variety of Magnum® products.” RECo’s fiberglass track switch covers keep the switch clear by preventing snow and ice from accumulating on switching rails. “In addition, use of track switch covers aids in reducing switch heater heat loss, reducing energy costs,” the company says. “New design modifications allow for continuous flow of heated air down the side and center covers. This provides more efficient operation of the heating elements, resulting in a lower operating cost. Track switch cover racks come fully assembled, providing an easy and safe method for transportation and storage.” Rail-NET™ collects and circulates railroad-defined asset operating data. RECo’s interface modules, which monitor a variety of analog and digital inputs, collect data that is transmitted to a secure online portal for processing and accessibility. “The portal allows the user to customize data presentation as well as when an alert should be sent out, and to whom,” the company says. “Alerts are sent out whenever an asset is operating outside normal parameters. Railroads can remotely determine the status of their equipment and prioritize their responses to better utilize their maintenance resources.” Fastrax® for Freight and Transit

Canada’s CCI Thermal Technologies recently acquired Fastrax®, a manufacturer of engineered electric rail heating packages. CCI’s Fastrax® FEB Electric Hot Air

where it’s needed. The motor shaft is fastened to the blower fan and, for oil units, coupled to a specially designed fuel pump adaptable to single- or dualfuel line feed. The main air duct is insulated to safeguard against possible track circuit interference. In the control panel, two adjustable electronic timers provide safety, ensuring that burners fire within a predetermined period of time, preventing fuel build-up. One of these timers continues blower operation after the burner shuts off to cool the unit. The HAB may be operated manually, remotely and/or automatically by the Rails Snow Detector.

Blower delivers high-velocity heated air to nozzles located at the switch point. The unit is assembled in a heavy-duty enclosed housing with easily accessible internal components. It comes standard with the FEDP Duct Package and automatic aerial and ground snow sensing equipment. Available in 20 kW, 40 kW and 60 kW versions in AC or DC voltages, it features custom configurations and wattages; fully enclosed all-aluminum construction; modular design, automated fan shutdown delay for overheat protection; multi-stage, energy-saving independent hot/cold operation, NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturer’s Association) 4-rated electric enclosure for moisture protection; automatic primary and manual secondary temperature protection; and noise levels below 80 dB (lower than the AREMA standard). The Fastrax® round tubular rail heater, available in lengths ranging from 12 to 36 feet, in AC or DC voltages from 208 to 600 volts, is designed for older switch installations that do not have the relief available for flat-profile heaters. Installed within the recess web area of a rail, it features stainless steel construction and premium-grade marine power cables. The SwitchBlade® heater, positioned within wing rail bracing slots, allows the heater to slide onto the top of the 28

wing rail base. It also features stainless steel construction. The 12-foot unit for wing rails provides 300 watts per foot of active heater length; the three-foot units for point plates offer 400 watts per foot of active heater length. The SwitchBlade®Type FSBR Spring Rail Frog Retrofit kit is designed for older-style spring frogs that do not have a built-in heater channel. The Type FSBS Spring Rail Frog Heating kit is designed for new-style spring frogs with a rectangular channel manufactured into the base of the frog casting. Rails Co.: New Jersey Hot Air

Maplewood, N.J.-based Rails Company is the only supplier manufacturing gas, all-electric and oil fueled high-pressure heating units. The company’s Hot Air Blower (HAB) features a high-pressure blower that forces air around a combustion chamber and through ductwork, providing even heat transfer and distribution. The HAB’s “uncomplicated piping leaves the switch area open for maintenance personnel,” the company says. “This keeps operating costs low. It can be fueled by natural gas or propane and powered by various voltages, single or poly-phase.” Electronic safety circuits constantly monitor blower operation. Adjustable nozzles allow users to direct airflow

Pintsch Tiefenbach: Go Dutch

Netherlands-based Pintsch Tiefenbach USA, new to the North American switch heater market, offers electric and gas-infrared switch point heating systems featuring a programmable PCU (Process Control Unit). The PCU “implements energy-efficiant point heating adjustment using data from sensors that detect rail temperature and ambient meteorological data—temperature, humidity, rainfall,” the company says. “This ‘smart system’ guarantees a high level of reliability.” The PCU is operated by a keyboard featuring alphamerically displayed commands and messages and LED indicators showing operating conditions. On-site diagnosis can be made via direct connection to a laptop or PC. Remote diagnosis and control can be carried out through a dial-up connection. Galvanic separation between the strip heaters mounted on right and left stock rails ensures safety. A major component is the heavyduty METEOSCAN Weather Station, which has been developed specifically for the railway market. This device “is able to determine the proper activation/deactivation moments of point heating installations using a parameterized algorithm,” the company notes. “All environmental sensors are housed in a durable stainless steel post.

harlotte may or may not get its grand Gateway Station, but “first it’s about the vision to do it,” says John Muth, Deputy Director of the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS). Since the city approved a half-cent sales tax to fund its long-term transit plan in 1998, the new Gateway station has been on the drawing board. In the meantime, the city has been busy building the only light rail system in the Carolinas, in hopes of expanding the vision for an eventual connection to the Gateway project. The City of Charlotte and the North Carolina Department of Transportation are partnering on the Charlotte Gateway Station (CGS) Project. The CGS Project will include a comprehensive multi-modal transportation facility in uptown Charlotte at the intersection of West Trade and Graham

Streets. This passenger station will provide long-distance travelers and daily commuters with greater accessibility to Charlotte’s employment, entertainment and cultural centers. The CGS is anticipated to spur the advancement of transitoriented development in the uptown area, including its own mixed-use development above the future CGS Station through a public-private partnership (P3). Planners say projected local economic benefits include: • Relief provided by the reductions in costs of car ownership and travel time delay based on an estimated 116,000 passengers per year riding LRT—more than $956 million anticipated over the life of the project. • Development of private sector jobs: $65.4 million through 2045.

Charlotte’s newest light rail expansion tracking into downtown.

• 80% of new train traffic to the CGS will be diverted from private automobiles, resulting in less pollution. • Reductions in freight delay valuing an estimated $3.9 million. • Reduced number of crashes on major freeways (the monetization of all-crash related benefits was estimated at $104.6 million over the life of the project). CATS would move its local bus services to CGS, to join Greyhound services already on site, but it’s the rail

developments that now have the city’s attention. The CityLYNX Gold Line is a 10-mile streetcar system that is being constructed in phases. The first phase opened in July 2015 and provides a 1.5-mile route from the Charlotte Transportation Center to Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center. The 2.5-mile second phase is currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2020. It will connect the Charlotte Transportation Center to Johnson C. Smith University (2 miles) and Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center to Sunnyside Avenue (0.5 miles). Eleven additional stops will be incorporated into the line. The estimated cost is $150 million and provided through a 50/50 federal/local match: President Obama’s FY2016 budget granted the second phase $75 million in the Federal Transit Administration’s Small Starts funding. The city’s 50% derives from unallocated and contingent capital accounts within the revenue sources, other than property taxes. The CityLYNX Gold Line currently uses three Gomaco replica trolley vehicles, but for the second-phase opening, the city will purchase seven modern streetcars. Stadler Rail, Brookville Equipment and Siemens are finalists for these new streetcars. Twenty Siemens S70 vehicles are currently in use on Charlotte’s 9.6 mile Blue Line light rail system, which opened in


TRANSIT FOCUS: CHARLOTTE

2007, and to which this second Gold Line phase will connect. The Blue Line itself is currently being extended: An additional 9.3 miles with 11 stations are scheduled to open in summer 2017. Four park and ride stations with approximately 3,000 spaces will be included. The extension will allow for continuous travel from I-485/South Boulevard through Center City to UNC Charlotte in approximately 47 minutes, connecting: Carolinas Medical Center/University; UNC Charlotte Center City Campus; Charlotte Transportation Center; Center City Charlotte; Blumenthal Performing Arts Center; Time Warner Cable Arena; ImaginOn: The Joe and Joan Martin Center and historic North Davidson. The estimated cost for the extension is $1.6 billion. John Muth explains this funding is a mix of 50% federal, 25% state and 25% local, “about the best we can hope for now,” he figures. “The competition is increasing at the federal level now for this funding, and state funding is never guaranteed, as it’s susceptible to the politics of legislatures.” Politics, Muth believes, will determine the fate of the planned LYNX Red Line, a 25-mile commuter rail system proposed to run north from the Gateway station: “We don’t have the local funding now, and we don’t have approval from Norfolk Southern, whose line we could share with this.” The eventual goal is to move the city’s Amtrak station into the Gateway station. “Currently, the Amtrak station is 1.5

miles from downtown,” Muth says. “It doesn’t provide a good connection for our city. Gateway would tie all of these developments together, for local commuters and visitors.” In the fall of 2015, Gateway received a $25 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. “We felt good after that,” Muth says. “We believe the Gateway project now has the most momentum it has had since first proposed in 1998.” The $25 million TIGER grant will be combined with state and local funds to complete the $65 million first phase of the Gateway project: Preliminary engineering and environmental analysis; acquisition of remaining property needed and site work; design and construction of track, structures and signals, and completion of a station area plan. Phase two is budgeted at approximately $20 million, and will involve completion of an interim station, platform, canopy and related infrastructure (parking, stairs, elevators, etc.). Phase three involves the procurement of P3 Partner, to design and construct a permanent station. “If we can figure a way to skip phase two and work directly with a master developer to do both the second and third phases, we’d be eager to discuss that,” Muth says. “We’re eager to see how others can help us create a new vision for Charlotte transportation.” RA

RAILWAY AGE CONFERENCE & EXPO

THE NEW PASSENGER PARADIGM By Ray Chambers

B

y the time I was a young man, over-regulation plus huge highway/aviation subsidies nearly killed the rail mode. In 1971, Congress created Amtrak to save freight railroads. PennCentral and other carriers tumbled into bankruptcy. By 1973, I was the lobbyist for the Secretary of Transportation, and we pushed bills through Congress to restructure and nationalize those railroads and jumpstart the deregulation that culminated in the successful Staggers Act of 1980. As a Republican political appointee, I could see the handwriting on the wall in 1975 and decided it was time to join the lucrative private sector. Beginning with the mighty Boston & Maine and Rock Island as clients, followed by short lines, C&NW and rail contractors, I wrestled with about every rail policy issue to hit Washington. Finally I retired from the firm I started. My wife didn’t want me home at lunch and I can’t play golf worth a damn, so I kept a favored client who kept me off the streets. That client, Herzog, had growing passenger operations. They noted that my Congressional successes equally benefitted their direct competitors. That ended up in the creation of the Association of Independent Passenger Rail Operators (AIPRO). We are a small organization. Four companies sit on our Board. They are FirstTransit, Herzog, Keolis and TransDev. Annually, the independent operators carry 80 million passengers in the U.S. I am now at it full time—having completely failed at retirement. Here is my message: The bad news is, the old model of monopoly intercity passenger city service is broken beyond repair. The good news is, we are at the beginning of a New Passenger Paradigm for urban and intercity rail in America. What is the New Passenger Paradigm? It is a connected urban-intercity rail network based roughly on the principles of the interstate highway system. While the federal government will be expected to supply infrastructure capital, states and local authorities will be responsible for implementation under general federal guidelines. Private service providers and P3 financing will be maximized. In fact, the New Passenger Paradigm has begun. No additional law is really needed. States are now responsible for funding and managing all 27 intercity corridors under 750 miles (2008 PRIIA, Section 209). Federal law requires that state-supported corridors be open to competition with Surface Transportation Board (STB) binding arbitration for the transfer of necessary Amtrak facilities and equipment. A streamlined Pilot Program is established where three long distance routes shall be transferred with subsidy to

32

Railway Age

July 2016

any responsible applicant who proposes equal or better service at 90% or less of the current Amtrak subsidy for up to eight years (FAST Act). The only real need for new legislation is to revisit the federal financing piece. AIPRO will press for two new statutes: 1. A new program of Grants to the States Based on 2008 PRIIA Section 301. A bipartisan deal was struck in 2008 between Transportation & Infrastructure Chair Jim Oberstar and Ranking Republican John Mica. The states were made responsible for all intercity subsidies on corridors under 750 miles (Section 209), while the federal government would provide the states with capital grants (Section 301). The states completely stepped up to the plate. Since then, Republican and Democratic governors have found the money and not abandoned one mile of service, ponying up some $300 million each year. In a complex series of sad developments, which I know well, the federal government reneged on the Oberstar-Mica Section 301 deal and left the states holding the bag with a totally unfunded mandate. 2. A new program to highlight Passenger Rail Economic Development Opportunity by promoting value capture. Transportation Oriented Development Value Capture districts can be the key to significant funding for rail projects. In the last Congress, the PetriLipinski H.R. 1544 called for a national program to encourage TOD value capture that could return significant sums to passenger rail projects ranging from streetcar to high speed rail. To accelerate the New Passenger Paradigm we need not reinvent the steel wheel, but rather look to such places as Germany and the United Kingdom. In the UK during the past 10 years of the private-operator competitive regime, operating costs decreased by 46% while ridership soared from 1 billion passengers to 1.6 billion passengers per year. All of the EU is mandated to move in this direction. Railway Age’s Chicago Rail Insights Conference, where I introduced the New Passenger Paradigm, was largely a freight forum. Take note: Passenger train expansion can be a growing component in freight’s changing business portfolio. We’ll need major public-private partnerships to add substantial capacity to our current rail infrastructure. Nothing is impossible, even in hard times. Lincoln brought us the Transcontinental Railroad in the Civil War and Eisenhower brought us the Interstate Highway System in the Cold War. Both changed America. I am an optimist. I have no doubt President Clinton—or maybe President Trump—will be happy to usher in this New Paradigm of High Performance Urban and Intercity Passenger Rail in America. It will change America for the better! RA


Intermodal Uberization Florida East Coast’s EZ Buy makes ordering, loading and delivering intermodal shipments as effortless as Uber.

T

he freight railroads are at a crossroads. Coal, the longtime backbone of the freight franchise that once amounted to 25% of all North American Class I revenue units, is gradually going away. The challenge thus becomes not only replacing the revenue stream, but attracting new lines of business that offer the same stability and consistency as coal once did. Intermodal containers are part of the solution, and Florida East Coast Railway has developed a system called EZ Buy to make ordering, loading and delivering shipments as effortlessly as calling up a Black Car on Uber to get you to the airport or a night on the town. The name of the game is reducing transaction costs, from finding a

driver to deliver an empty container to your door, to taking the load to your customer. This writer calls EZ Buy the Uberization of freight, and the reason is simple. Punch up Uber on your iPhone and tell the app you want to go “Home” and that’s all there is to it. The advantage is that you avoid the transaction cost of hailing a cab, explaining where you want to go, and digging out the cash or credit card for the driver. Similarly, bring up www.fecrconnect. com/app/ezbuy on your desktop or tablet browser (a smart-phone app is in the works), punch up your origin and destination, your desired date and time of pickup or delivery, and the system gives you the service options as well as a price. You can either accept the

price presented or negotiate one more suitable to your needs (within limits). You’ve lowered your transaction cost by getting all the shipment details in one place at one time. No waiting for call-backs or tracing en-route required. The advantage to FEC is avoiding the transaction cost of a driver waiting for a load, and of building a train as the orders come in, making train size variable day to day. At the destination end, FEC avoids the costs of parking the load while it waits for the drayer and dealing with many different drayers. Moreover, FEC captures a constant stream of data about every customer and load, making many transactions repeatable and predictable.

Right now, it’s just cargo vans and largely not too different from “I’ll pick you up,” but more of “I’ll pick you and your stuff up as well.” “I think the Uber for freight transportation is about looking at the business model that the Uber company has turned on its head—the taxicab industry—and saying, how can we take some of those lessons on for here?” says Sashihara . “If I’m a shipper, why do I have to look on my TMS system? Why shouldn’t there just be an app that lets me [buy and] track my own freight?” Enter EZ Buy. This writer has been running some trials with it in his iPad and iMac. He’s seen the demo, and it truly lets the user pick an origin, a destination, and the desired pickup or delivery time. EZ Buy is an intermodal product, and FEC controls every aspect of the move. This writer likes the select delivery time feature because it lets vendors assure delivery to their customers as needed. He predicts that not only will EZ Buy be a game-changer for FEC, but that as customers get comfortable with it, they will demand similar tools from other railroads. Or, absent such, they will stick with the truckers they know. RA 34

AC locomotives with a horsepower rating above 4,000 have predominated among new additions to the fleet since the mid-1990s.

Power Plays Railinc’s annual North American Locomotive Review shows a fleet growing in horsepower, size—and age. By David Humphrey, Ph.D., Senior Analyst, Railinc Corp., for Railway Age

William C. Vantuono

R

ailinc’s annual analysis of the North American locomotive fleet reveals that the size of the total fleet increased in 2015, driven by growth in high-horsepower, six-axle, alternating current traction motors (AC) diesel locomotives. These locomotives are changing the demographics of the fleet. Key findings include: • Locomotives continue to join the fleet at a steady rate. This was the sixth consecutive year of growth for the fleet. At the end of 2015, the locomotive fleet totaled 38,500. It was up about 1,100 units, or 3%, from 2014. • The age of the locomotive fleet

increased in 2015. Locomotives have long service lives, and their average and median ages both increased 0.6 years in 2015, compared to 0.1 years in 2014. This was the sixth consecutive year the average and median ages increased. • High-horsepower AC locomotives with a horsepower rating of above 4,000 have predominated among new additions to the fleet since the mid-1990s. Locomotives with AC units, which perform well at hauling heavy loads, account for the majority of new additions to the fleet in the past decade. And locomotives with the highest fuel capacity—more than 4,500 gallons—make up the largest percentage of the fleet.

Increase in Fleet Size Continues

Since Railinc began reporting on locomotives in 2010, the size of the locomotive fleet has increased each year. At the end of 2015, the locomotive fleet totaled 38,500 units, up about 1,100 units, or 3%, from the previous year (Figure 1). Nearly 850 new locomotives joined the North American fleet in 2015, down from about 1,250 the previous year (Figure 2). However, the fleet has added at least 750 new units in each of the past five years. Historically, the average age of the fleet and the number of locomotives added to the fleet mirror the economic July 2016 Railway Age 35

environment. When the economy is strong, as in the mid-1990s and mid-2000s, there are more railcars in service, and the fleet tends to grow. During periods of recession, fewer new locomotives join the fleet. As new locomotives join the fleet each year, large railroads move older units to less-demanding roles, sell them to regional and short line railroads or make them available to be rebuilt or refurbished. A locomotive has a long service life and can be used in a variety of ways over time. Starting with making long hauls during its first decades of service, it then works on regional and short line railroads in middle age and finally performs lighter duty service— such as moving railcars in a hump yard—at 60 or 70 years old.

DC diesel locomotives make up 68% of the North American locomotive fleet, while the share of AC diesel locomotives continues to increase (Figure 3). The percentage of DC units continues its slow decline as more AC units join the fleet. Though DC diesel locomotives still make up nearly two-thirds of the North American fleet, AC diesel locomotives have dominated among new additions in the past eight years. Since 2006 and 2007, AC units have made up more than half of all new additions to the locomotive fleet. In the past four years, 93% of all new locomotives were AC units. Locomotives with a horsepower rating above 4,000 continue to make up a larger share of the North American locomotive fleet—43% of the fleet in 2015, up one percentage point from 2014. As a percentage of the fleet, locomotives between 2,001 and 4,000 horsepower held steady in 2015. The smallest locomotives—those with up to 2,000 horsepower—declined one percentage point. This reflects the trend of highhorsepower locomotives dominating among additions to the fleet. The fleet does continue to add lower-horsepower locomotives,

AC diesel locomotives, which tend to be newer. There are more than twice as many DC diesel locomotives in the North American fleet than AC units. However, DC units are more evenly distributed by horsepower rating, with locomotives with horsepower ratings of

2,000 or less making up the largest share of such units. Six-axle locomotives make up 70% of the North American locomotive fleet, up one percentage point over the previous year. Six-axle locomotives distribute the weight of a locomotive to the rails across more wheels and deliver tractive effort through more wheels and traction motors. The majority of six-axle locomotives were built in the past 30 years. Locomotives with fuel capacity of more than 4,500 gallons make up 55% of the North American fleet, up one percentage point from the previous year. This share has grown in recent years, while the share of locomotives with fuel capacity between 3,500 and 4,500 gallons has decreased. This is consistent with the recent trend of the fleet adding new high-horsepower, sixaxle locomotives, which have larger fuel tanks.

Products ZTR upgrades KickStart

Roadway worker protection

The newest version of the ZTR Control Systems KickStart locomotive battery assist uses supercapacitor technology to augment the power required to start the locomotive engine, minimizing the drop in battery voltage during start. It has been redesigned with functional improvements that reduce this drop even more, so that electronics stay on and the strain on the batteries is diminished. The new hardware design is lighter, weighing only 45 pounds, and more compact for easier installation and requires no regular maintenance after installation. Other benefits include reliable cold weather performance, and intuitive diagnostics. “We work with railroads every day and are aware of the challenges they face, specifically with respect to starting issues,” says Amarjit Soora, Manager of Engineering, Railway Business Unit at ZTR Control Systems. “We’re proud of this new design.” For more information, visit www.ztr.com.

Miller Ingenuity has developed a Roadway Worker Protection System designed to detect the approach of all trains, roadway maintenance machines, and hi-rail vehicles into a work zone. It is portable, easy to deploy, and requires no attachment to the locomotive or to the rail. The system is designed to protect any size work zone with direct alerts provided to an unlimited number of equipped workers, under any weather conditions. It doesn’t rely on dispatch communications or train crews. It brings the warning directly to the work crew to clear the area. Miller describes its system as the only Roadway Worker Protection System that allows a work crew to independently create its own safe zone of protection, completely independent of other departments. The components are set up and controlled by the Employee in Charge (EIC) of the work zone. The Miller Ingenuity system can be applied in freight and passenger rail applications. The system will be available for sale in the fourth quarter of this year. For more information, visit www.milleringenuity.com.

Marco Dustmaster® 6,000 CFM Electric Dust Collector The Dustmaster® 6,000 CFM Electric Dust Collector creates an engineered air flow up to 6,000 cubic feet per minute, providing ventilation and collecting airborne dust and debris from an enclosed work site. By removing airborne dust and debris, workers have better visibility to the work surface, increasing production rates. This dust collector features a reverse incline blade fan that is matched with a 15 horsepower Baldor® electric motor to produce up to 6,000 CFM of air flow. The two-piece design provides improved transport and gives flexibility on placement on small work sites. More information: www.marco.us, or 1.800.BLAST.IT (800.252.7848)

Lat-Lon Adaptive Device Configuration Tracking Lat-Lon offers a new level of “SMART” tracking technology with the addition of Adaptive Device Configuration (ADC). Tracking and monitoring devices can now make decisions on their own with the help of ADC. Traditionally, users of GPS tracking devices would need to closely monitor and manually change the configuration of a device. For large fleets, this task can be overwhelming and time prohibitive. ADC makes it possible for users to easily manage reporting configuration and get automatic updates based on location, weather data, proximity to set points, unit status, and sensor input. ADC users can add “if-then” logic at the back-office level that allows a unit to react to data. This creates efficient, customized reporting that allows customers to track their assets even closer at critical times. For example, once a device leaves a specific geofence, reporting frequency can change to automatically update every ten minutes. Lat-Lon’s goal in creating ADC was to improve “SMART” technology by taking out the manual steps in the configuration process. This is beneficial for customers because they receive more timely data, reduce their work load, and increase their productivity. Visit www.lat-lon.com for more information.

RAILWAY AGE CONFERENCE & EXPO

DAVID NAHASS

Rail Insights 2016 takeaways

A

t the recent Railway Age “Rail Insights 2016” conference, I moderated a panel on the lease market for railcars. My panel participants were Robert Hart from Fifth Third Bank and Greg Schmid from Residco, a railcar lessor. The current weakness in segments of the lease market for railcars and locomotives continues similarly to what was discussed in the Guide to Equipment Leasing in last month’s Railway Age. Some notable takeaways: • Scrap steel, after staging a small runup in price, has backed off recent highs. • Used car, secondary market values show a strength that is a disconnect from the dropping prices of new railcars. • It remains difficult to call the bottom of the market and forecast improvement. When discussing the downturn, say in covered hoppers for sand service, comparing the covered hopper market to the centerbeam flat car market suggests long-term malaise, while at the same time, a move for oil above $50/barrel leads to thoughts of optimism. It’s tough to call. One topic at Rail Insights was the pace of implementing tank railcars designed to the DOT-117 specification and how that pace (slow) is going to be managed between the incongruent implementation dates in the U.S. and Canada, as Tom Simpson, President of the Railway Supply Institute, noted. U.S. regulators require DOT-111 “legacy cars” to be removed from crude oil service by Jan. 1, 2018, while Canadian regulators require the same by Jan. 1, 2017 and are hoping for sooner. Some confusion about implementation of the DOT-117 tank railcars originates from a lack of understanding about equipment and equipment owners. For example, Simpson mentioned that some

regulators wonder why equipment owners (lessors) do not just “swap” older legacy and DOT-111 (CPC-1232 design) tank railcars for DOT-117 tank railcars. This question might provide a chuckle for equipment leasing veterans, but it’s a question in need of an answer. Leasing a railcar is similar to leasing an automobile. It is not at all like renting a car from Hertz or Avis or Enterprise. In an automobile lease, the person leasing the car has possession of that car, operates it and maintains it during the lease. In railcar-leasing

Crude oil moving to a price above $50/barrel has led to optimism, yet the market is still too tough to call. vernacular, an automobile lease is a “net lease.” The lease for an automobile, like for a railcar, has a lease term (number of months for which a company or person is leasing the railcar or automobile) and a lease rate that is generally paid monthly. Contrast this against renting from a rental agency. If there is a problem with a rental car, the car owner, or its representative, has an obligation to repair or replace that car for you. Railcar leases do not operate this way. Now that you have a primer on railcar leasing, what’s the issue? If you enter into a lease for an automobile in December of a given year (typically the best time to buy a car) and the following June next year’s model has features you prefer, your

lease does not allow you to trade up to the new car or install the additional features you want with no additional charge. Why? The owner of the automobile has made an investment in the car you lease and in the leasing of that car to the customer/ lessee. A lease is a pathway to recovering that investment. Unless you buy it out, typically, next year’s great features will have to wait until your current lease expires. Such it is with railcars. If a lessor has paid $100,000 to $130,000 for a tank railcar, the act of swapping that car out for a DOT-117 car (or for investing in a retrofit that may cost up to $60,000 per car) leaves that lessor with no way to receive a return on its investment in the older car (or from the additional retrofit expense). In other words, until the day when federal regulations require that all tank railcars in service must conform to the DOT-117 spec, the railcar lessors need every dollar of rent due under those leases to pay off that investment. There is no other way to recover the capital used to buy that tank railcar. Some might feel that it is the lessor’s responsibility to meet or exceed the DOT-117 standard, and that a lessor has an obligation to dip into the pockets they have been stuffing with high rental rates the past few years. It is unlikely (especially for tank railcars built in the past ten years) that any lessor will have received its invested capital back from those cars. Before dismissing that with a shrug, imagine the market malaise that would occur if all the legacy and DOT-111 (CPC-1232) tank railcars were owned by the end users/lessees instead of the lessors. Not so shruggable after all. Got questions? Set them free at dnahass@ railfin.com.
