I understand and mostly agree with your assessment. The only thing I can't agree with is the construction of more grain processing facilities. I can't see it, based upon the number that are already out there and working on so tight a margin. Rail could certainly improve profit margins, but would it be enough to justify moving or expanding?
My only concern is that taxpayers don't fall for spend-crazy liberals' attempt to use this as a foot in the door for light rail. Even though I'm a big believer in railroads, I'm not certain that even freight could support this line when you consider the number of processors already located and operating to use I95 and I40....and anyone with a brain knows that light rail will be nothing but a money-shredder.
