Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. plans to boost [other] capital spending at its railroad.
The railroad’s plan calls for $400 million in terminal, intermodal-expansion and efficiency projects, including on coal routes. The rail serves mines in the Western U.S., including Wyoming’s Powder River Basin, which holds the largest and cheapest U.S. reserves of the power-plant fuel.Badalamenti concludes:
