Indexing the Annual Operating Revenues of Railroads

    The Surface Transportation Board (STB) is publishing the annual 
inflation-adjusted index factors for 2014. These factors are used by 
the railroads to adjust their gross annual operating revenues for 
classification purposes. This indexing methodology ensures that 
railroads are classified based on real business expansion and not from 
the effects of inflation. Classification is important because it 
determines the extent to which individual railroads must comply with 
STB reporting requirements.
    The STB's annual inflation-adjusted factors are based on the annual 
average Railroad's Freight Price Index which is developed by the Bureau 
of Labor Statistics (BLS). The STB's deflator factor is used to deflate 
revenues for comparison with established revenue thresholds.
    The base year for railroads is 1991. The inflation index factors 
are presented as follows:
