Several elements in the Rail Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act will materially benefit the coal industry. One is Section 310, "Equitable Distribution of Cars for Unit Train Service". The establishment of a dual fleet for railroad owned cars -- unit train and non-unit train -- will enable mines to receive a more certain car supply. Of nearly equal importance, the new Act brings together capital and commitment in rail ratemaking by virtue of a long needed provision. That provision is Section 206, which provides protection for a rate requiring a capital investment by the carrier, or the users, of one million dollars or more.
