ANATOMY OF SUCCESS

The success of the Chessie system is the result of many factors, among which are the diversity of its operations and the importance of coal transportation. Coal represents 40% of the Chessie's business, making it the largest U.S. rail carrier of coal. Freight operations are facilitated by efficient yard operations; a new automated yard jointly serving the B&O and the C&O is being built in Cincinnati. The structure of the company--divisional profit centers-- is also regarded as an important element in the organization's success.
