For the month of November, the AAR reported that U.S. carloads were up 0.4 percent, or 5,406 carloads, at 1,319,008 for its first monthly annual increase in 22 months, going back to January 2015. This is a longer stretch of declines than a 19-month run of downward volumes that occurred during the Great Recession, the AAR said, adding that one factor behind the November increase was easier annual comparisons, coupled with how carloads did not see as much of an October to November decline as usual this year.
