The Investors’ Guide to Railroad Freight Cars and Locomotives was created in response to the many requests submitted to RailSolutions, Inc. for industry-specific data related to the equipment employed by North American freight railroads. RailSolutions has compiled a broad base of railroad industry and equipment-related data which we use in providing general advisory services and in conducting equipment appraisals. We have made an effort to organize and present this information in a manner which is general enough to cover a broad variety of railroad industry and equipment-related factors, and at the same time, is specific enough to address investment issues related to 14 general service and specialty railcar types and 17 of the most widely used locomotive models.
The “Investors’ Guide” covers:
- Equipment Descriptions
- Ownership Profiles
- Age Distribution
- Traffic Statistics
- Historic Valuation Data
- Estimates of Current and Projected Fair Market Values
The link below contains a representative section of the 2016 – 2017 edition of the Investors’ Guide (Section 1 – General Service Boxcars). The General Service Boxcar section is one of the 14 General Service railcar types addressed and is similar in format to the rest of the Investors’ Guide.
The 2018 edition of The Guide will be offered to our subscribers on a Protected PDF platform. This platform will allow RailSolutions to update The Guide on a quarterly basis. The quarterly updates will also include commentary on railroad industry and market developments.
