National passenger carrier Amtrak released its 2018 Host Railroad Report Card, which grades six of the Class I freight host railroads based on delays caused to Amtrak trains over the last 12 months.
The grades ranged from A to F, with Canadian Pacific being the lone recipient of an “A.” Norfolk Southern got an “F.”
All told, Amtrak averaged the overall performance of the Class I host railroads at a “C.”
Eleven of 28 Amtrak state-hosted routes achieved 80 percent on-time performance (within 15 minutes of scheduled departure), according to the report card.
Conversely, only one of the 15 long-distance routes, the “Auto Train,” had on-time performance of more than 70 percent, Amtrak said.
