BNI is the ticker symbol of Burlington Northern Railroad. The stock is doing extremely well right now. It is the best US railroad and Dow Transportation index is setting new highs.We here that Union Pacific is hiring. They made an early retirement offer that too man former Southern Pacific engineers accepted. So they have been suffering from shortages of crews and locomotives. And this in the face of lots of made in China goods landing at west coast ports for shipment across the US.That is one of the reasons BNI has been doing well. Others are high fuel costs are a big pain to truckers; rail is more efficient. Another is coal. Western railroads still have large land grant lands--much of it rich in low sulfur coal.It a great time to start a railroad career.
