#1 BNSF is owned by Warren Buffet's group. They would profit from their share of the hauling. Thus there are players on both sides.

#2 No need for coal iff the Perts are going to argue there is no "Peak Oil/Energy/Resources" Crisis, correct???

Also, AFAIK the Fed is still planning to design + dev a "COMMON/UNIVERSAL CARRIER" for all the tranportation modes - Air, Rail, Truck, + Ocean.
ALL THE MAJOR UNIONS WILL NEED THEIR MEMBERS TO BE RE-EDUCATED, RE-TRAINED, + CERTIFIED IN OPERAT + MAINTAINING SUCH, + LEARNING TO PRONOUNCE "VESSEL" AS "VEASEL/VEESEL" LIKE STAR TREK:TOS' ENSIGN CHEKOV.

IIUC, a "high school dropout" of today + earlier generations will the equivalent of a Master's or Doctoral, or post-Doctoral-level "space college/university" dropout in the future.
