Genesee & Wyoming Reports Traffic For October 2013

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) (NYSE:GWR) today reported traffic volumes for October 2013.

Beginning in January 2013, G&W is reporting consolidated traffic volumes including carloads from RailAmerica Inc. (RA) railroads that were previously reported separately. To provide comparative context for 2013 consolidated traffic volumes, G&W is providing supplemental 2012 carload information on a pro forma basis as though the RA railroads were owned by G&W on January 1, 2012. In addition, G&W has amended RA’s 2012 carload information to conform with G&W’s reporting methodology.

G&W’s traffic in October 2013 was 163,829 carloads, an increase of 83,588 carloads, or 104.2%, compared to G&W’s traffic in October 2012, and an increase of 9,711 carloads, or 6.3%, compared to total October 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition.

The table below sets forth consolidated summary carload information for October 2013 and October 2012:
