in May, CSX, announced a 3- for 1- split, a hike
in dividend and a share buy back.

Record Date May 31, 2011-

Ex Dividend Date June 16, 2011

Buying shares of a railroad company is money in the
"Bank". All one has to do is just wait.

Do the railroad stock(s) go down? Yes they do,
but eventually they go higher than before.

In the 80s, any one who invested in
Santa Fe Pacific, Burlington Northern,
Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern, and held onto
the shares, with all the ups and downs of the
stock market, and they were plenty, still made
a small fortune.

Mr. Warren Buffet, bought Burlington Northern/
Santa Fe Pacific, on the cheap.

So to all of you out there I say... hop to it.
Buy now!

Yes, we have an interest, but the Railroads board is a bit more active--

I think its all about finding volunteers to help keep up with the latest developments. Hope you can help out.

Speaking of splits, my cost basis for BNI was in the 60s in the 90s. My split-adjusted cost basis for BRK/B in 2004 was $58. I now make BNSF worth $150 or so (see my post in the RRs board) and BRK/Bis $125.

So one takes the sol;its and enjoys them.

If BNSF, has not been taken over by Warren Buffett,
the stock would be $150+....
