North American rail companies have been on a steep upward climb for a decade, but there's still a strong case for hopping aboard their shares.

Split I would be more concerned about crashing. A company cant sustain them selves on cutting the working mans jobs and pensions alone. CPR has less business now than when Fred Green was CEO. Any gains that have been made are only tempoary, as they are one time cuts made on the backs of the many men and women on the ground who make this company click. Its only a matter of time and the real numbers will come out.

Employees are quitting in great numbers because of workplace abuse/bullying/unfair dismissals/fear/told to perform illegal work. As long as the bottom line looks good...who cares if unqualified people are being hired at lower wages to fill jobs. There will be less safety and more layoffs. There are going to be many more derailments/safety issues that will be blamed on the employee on the ground. If the employer gets rid of qualified personnel by intimidation, firing, etc. how is the railroad to operate properly. Buy more shares now people because bad times are coming soon.
