Jeffery,

I don't think there will be any more mergers anytime soon. There was speculation a few months ago that CSX and UP would merge. But that was started by rumors and also from all the UP trains that run on CSX. Back in 2000 there was again speculation that BNSF and CN would merge. The STB (Surface Transportation Board) put a stop to that one by putting a 15-month moratorium on large scale mergers.

The only mergers that we might be seeing from now on are ones from smaller railroads.
