Commuter rail traffic that operates on the BNSF network of rail, such as Northstar and Amtrak, should experience less frequent delays as a result of expanded routes and traffic control projects, said Amy McBeth, spokesperson for BNSF.
She also said the company is adding locomotives and staff to help address increasing demand from shippers from all sectors.

Expansion has become necessary due to a spike in crude oil rail shipments.
According to the Association of American Railroads
, the amount of crude oil terminated carloads -- cars which were unloaded -- in the U.S. increased nearly sixfold from 2011 to 2013, from just less than 75,000 to nearly 450,000.
said Minnesota has experienced a "significant" increase in rail traffic due to oil drilling in North Dakota's Bakken oilfields.

"Since 9/11, we have worked with federal officials on improving public security," said BNSF spokesperson Amy McBeth, "and as a result, do not make public information such as what hazardous materials move on what routes on our network."
About eight unit trains a day use the BNSF rail network to carry oil to refineries outside North Dakota, according to McBeth
St. Paul is part of the state's most prominent rail hub, and the rail yard just south of Energy Park Drive is a major intermodal facility on the route between North Dakota and Chicago.
BNSF boasts that it has the highest freight capacity of any rail line serving the Williston Basin, the region that contains the Bakken oil fields.
As early as 2012 the company reported that it was able to haul a million barrels a day out of the area.
Unit tank trains of the type that carry North Dakota oil may also carry ethanol, McBeth
"Railroads remain the safest ground transportation for freight in general and one of the safest ways to move Bakken
oil from 1 crude oil," said McBeth
