FREIGHT CAR SUPPLY AND THE LEASING PHENOMENON

The activity in the freight car market indicates that not only will fleet capacity grow, but the number of units may increase. The roles played by railroad-owned car pools, and by outside leasing organizations through short-line operators is discussed. The possible trends in car leasing, action on incentive per diem and effects of changes in government regulation could all be important in future ownership patterns. The current status of a major car leasor, Itel Rail, and incentives for car ownership through traditional car leasing companies are the subjects of separate boxes.
