1 Miles of railroad operated is synonymous with route-miles (so that a mile of single track is counted the same as a mile of double track). Sidings, turnouts, yard switching mileage, and mileage not operated are excluded. Miles operated under trackage rights provided by another (owning) railroad are included. Year-to-year changes in miles operated are due to both changes in track mileage and changes in the number of railroads with rights for the same track.

2 Includes trackage rights.

3 Refers to non-Class I, Canadian-owned lines.

4 Excludes miles owned by Amtrak.

NOTE: For definition of railroad types see previous table.
