There’s fresh criticism of those plans for coal terminals in Oregon and Washington. Transportation consultants worry about the effect on rail traffic in the northwest.  The plans on the drawing boards call for as many as sixty coal trains arriving daily with 150-million tons of coal every year. Opponents say that's going to cause problems for other industries that ship by rail, mainly crowded rail corridors, delays, higher freight rates. The railroads say that's overblown. They’ll have more revenue from the coal trains and make the needed improvements.
