October 17th - 2017
Rail traffic this past week was up 6.3% compared to the same period last year. The rail industry over all is very healthy with only grains and coal down. CP was upgraded this past week by JP Morgan and the listening session on CSX’s Service issues at the Surface Transportation Board’s headquarters in Washington D.C. went better than expected. While CSX service is not up to the same levels as last year service is getting better and on the right track.

Rail markets are extremely active in ALL sectors. Every car type was met with inquires this past couple of weeks both on the BID side and OFFERED side for purchase, for sale. Lessors looking to lease out their cars and Lessees looking for leases or subleases. You name it PFL has received an inquiry and a number of deals are pending and in contract review. The market has changed and many fleet operators that were once long are finding themselves short bits and pieces. We currently have BID interest in DOT 111 GP 13.8 -18K lined cars, a number of 25.5 markets (if you have 25.5’s call PFL now!), CPC 1232 Cars (need to be cleaned 150 of them), Covered hoppers (must be 286 GRL) a number of 31.8 markets for Ethanol (must be clean or last in ethanol). Pressure cars for winter and for one year are still in demand albeit at muted prices. Please see updated markets below and call PFL now for live up to date pricing.
