Railroads - "Smelling Like A Rose"

Today's Wall Street Journal reports that, predictably, the American Society of Civil Engineers gives the state of US infrastructure a "D+".

But wait!!! Railroads got a "B":

Fair Use:

..The only infrastructure sector to receive a B in this year’s report was rail, where private freight companies have invested heavily—$27.1 billion in 2015—to improve service. Rail received a C+ grade in 2013. No sector in either year received an A grade
