BNSF adding resources in North Dakota
BNSF Railway Co. is looking to decrease delays in North Dakota by adding as many as 5,000 crew members in their system, which will include 250 additional temporary workers in North Dakota alone. BNSF also plans to add 5,000 additional rail cars and 125 locomotives to help combat delays that have been affecting the state during recent months.

Because much rail resource has been devoted to the oil production, other industries, such as agriculture, are experiencing up to 40 day delays in moving product.
