Miles operated is in terms of railroad so that a mile of single track is counted
the same as a mile of double track. Sidings, turnouts, yard switching
mileage, and mileage not operated are excluded. Miles operated under
trackage rights provided by another (owning) railroad are included.

KEY: L.L.C. = Limited liability company.
