Railroads are coming back steadily, and KSU is especcially well positioned for a relatively smaller player. They move many farm and fuel commodities and, if we assume manufacturing in the Mid-West revives will benefit enormously. They also tie into construction, especially lumber and cement. KSU also extends into Mexico, a very unappreciated market. Management is excellent, tight with a buck, and exploring alternative energies. Finally, KSU is a first-rate buy-out candidate or junior partner in a merger. Buy some.
