... we will improve network fluidity, optimize train starts, and dramatically reduce out-of-route train miles ...

I just love specious corporate-speak. :x

When they start tossing around double talk like that in meetings at work I ask if they can repeat that in a language I understand. Must be why I don't get invited to many meetings any more.

From a Wall Street service:

We spoke with CSX, and the change back to a switching yard will increase capacity from 1,000 to 1,500 cars per day. More importantly, this will reduce traffic through other yards such as Waycross, GA and Cincinnati. As a result, CSX estimates this change can eliminate about 30M unnecessary car miles per year. CSX also expects this will help reduce some capital costs at other yards and the start-up costs to switch back to a hump yard should be minimal. So this seems like the continued evolution and implementation of precision railroading.

Fleshes out the corporate-speak.

Wouldn't translating the corporate speak result in "We found out that our previous changes were a bad idea and are changing back"?

You never want to say that to the shareholders.

Unless you can follow it up with the statement that the driving force behind those changes is no longer employed by the corporation.

A bolder move would be to announce they INVENTED hump yards thanks to AI-based IOT Data Mining.
