    The difference in those graphs is dramatic. Rail and water are great for shipping worthless cargo. I guess I’m not surprised, but still the magnitude is dramatic.

      I think that’s greater defined in the fine text. Rail likely cannot get to the retail outlets and needs a truck to finish the trip. So short mile trips probably are more responsible for the higher worth.
