1Miles 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.

2 Does not include trackage rights.

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

NOTE: For definition of railroad types see previous table.
