Rail = cheap and slow
Over the road = faster and more expensive
Lots of freight is moving by rail, but time critical ones OTR (produce, for example). Unfortunately, some reports say railroads are nearing capacity. Building new lines would be as tough as a pipeline ----- or tougher: pipelines don't make noise!
Need some innovation to get more trains on the same tracks--
