schlimm: EHH knows a lot more about management than ANY of us. Wait and see.  If CSX were so efficient already, why is its OR so high?

It's OR isn't high.  Actually, it's at an all time low over the past couple years.

 

 2016 CSX operating ratio = 69.4 percent.  2016 CP record-low operating ratio = 58.6 percent

 

 

 

 

Apples and oranges.  Length of haul, traffic mix, highway competition, Labor rate with fringe.  All different.

What was CSX's OR in the 1990's when EHH started doing his thing?  Around 90.  Now below 70.  20 point drop in 20 years.  Just lucky?

 

 

 

In 2010, prior to EHH, CP's OR was 81.3. Over a 20 point drop in 5.5 years.  Just lucky?

 

No.  He just did what CSX, NS, BNSF and UP did - which is the same as what he did at IC and CN.

It's all done.  Everywhere.  Everyone has done PCS.  EHH gets credit for doing it first and doing it the most.  But, there's no "there" there at CSX to do!
