BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The head of the biggest railroad serving the Upper Great Plains says hauling pickup trucks by rail has really picked up.

BNSF Executive Chairman Matt Rose joked that pickup truck hauling by rail appears to be “the next great line of business” for the railroad.

Rose says BNSF is hauling 240 pickups daily by rail to Fargo and St. Paul, Minnesota. He says that’s a 543 percent increase since 2011.
