"JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RailAmerica, Inc. (NYSE:RA - News) today reported that its total freight carloads for the month ended December 31, 2010 were 71,209, up 4.0% from 68,445 in December 2009. These results include the Ottawa Valley Railway (OVRR) operation.

The Company increased shipments in December 2010 in nine out of twelve commodity groups compared to December 2009. Much of the increase was due to shipments of Coal, Metallic Ores and Metals, and Non-Metallic Minerals and Products. Coal increased primarily due to shipments in the Central region. Metallic Ores and Metals volumes were up primarily due to increased shipments in the Midwest and Northeast regions. Non-Metallic Minerals and Products carloads increased primarily due to higher shipments in the Central and Northeast regions. The largest declines were in Agricultural Products and Motor Vehicles. Agricultural Products were down primarily due to lower shipments in the Midwest and West regions, and Motor Vehicles were down primarily due to decreased shipments in the Midwest region.

RailAmerica, Inc. owns and operates short line and regional freight railroads in North America, operating a portfolio of 40 individual railroads with approximately 7,300 miles of track in 27 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces."
