Supplementary notes

Excludes miles owned by Amtrak.
Data in this statistic include trackage rights.
* 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.
** Class I, regional, linehaul, switching and terminal, and Canadian railroads.
