“As I reflect back on this past year, this team of railroaders has proven they are capable of accomplishing amazing things,” said James M. Foote, president and chief executive officer. “We are entering 2019 on a new trajectory with significant opportunity to improve across all aspects of our business. I expect CSX to deliver even better service to our customers and drive significant shareholder value.”

Expenses increased 9 percent year over year to $1.89 billion, or 2 percent when 2017 results are adjusted for the impacts of restructuring and tax reform benefits.
