YourToyTrains is proud to offer the CSX Transportation BAC60910 for $77.99 (Pictured below) in our HO Locomotive Category. We are saluting CSX for their Third Quarter 2015 results. Railroads have been having a tough year. Traffic mixes have been unfavorable, reducing revenues. With falling worldwide gasoline prices, American produced oil has looked less attractive. Finally, coal revenue, especially in West Virginia and Kentucky where CSX serves, has dropped sharply.
CSX did see revenue drop in the Third Quarter by 9%. But with cost controls and lower fuel prices expenses fell 11%. As a result, net earnings remained flat at about $509 million. Wow! What excellent results for the stepchild railroad who could not get their act together. Times are changing!
