One More Plus for Rail Transportation

I came across – and verified – a fascinating tidbit of information yesterday. It brings into sharp focus just how much more fuel efficient rail transportation is than any of the alternatives.

How far do you think one gallon of fuel will move a ton of freight by rail?

The answer is 432 miles!

It really isn’t very complicated: steel wheels on steel rails = less friction. Whether passengers or freight, rail is a good way to go.
