"The rail building flurry has already begun and hopes to be at a 1-million-barrel capacity this year."

Wow a million barrel capacity.

And from this article

"In 2008, fewer than 20,000 barrels a day of crude oil moved on trains in the U.S. By the end of 2012, that number had jumped above 500,000 – a more than 25-fold increase in five years."

So they are planning on doubling it in a year. That really has to make up for some pipelines not being built. Yet a lot of oil companies are still scaling back drilling plans for the year ahead.
