Berkshire Hathaway Inc. plans to increase capital spending at its BNSF Railway Co. by $4.1 billion this year as it prepares to handle rising oil shipments and expands its intermodal terminal capacity, Bloomberg News reported.
BNSF, Fort Worth, Texas, is also spending about $250 million on a U.S. rail-safety mandate and $550 million for terminal, line and intermodal expansion and efficiency projects, Bloomberg reported.
Separately, CSX Corp. said it plans a $26 million project to expand its River line between northern New Jersey and the Albany, N.Y., region.
CSX will build 18 miles of second track over the next two to three years to create additional capacity on the Hudson River’s west shore, the freight railroad said in a statement.
