Berkshire said its MidAmerican Energy utility subsidiary owns the CBEC railroad that brings coal over six miles of track to its power plant south of Council Bluffs.
The White City Terminal Union railroad that serves an industrial park near Medford, Ore., is owned by Railserve Inc. That company is part of the industrial conglomerate Marmon Holdings Inc., in which Berkshire has owned a controlling interest since 2008.
Berkshire said the White City line is only 12 miles long and has two employees and two locomotives. It generates about $250,000 in revenue annually.
We, in my joib at Interstate Commerce Commission, would have noticed this, and might have called him on it.
Friends, who retired with me when ICC was sunset and STB established, probably laughing about this today!
