There IS a solution to this, called the "open rails" concept where the government will build up the infrastucture and relieve the RRs fron the tax and maintenance burden, and let anybody run trains on it as long as they meet FRA compliance. You could see Wal-Mart stack trains, Toyota or KIA autoracks, Cargill or ADM tank trains, etc..

When that idea was kicked over a few years back the screams from Omaha and Ft. Worth were pretty revealing!
