The article, which appears as the lead news item in our November issue, has been augmented online with results from BNSF Railway Co. After the other Class Is issued their 3Q reports through late October, BNSF posted a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission form 10-Q on its web site that summarizes some of its financial results.
