N. American traffic for april 19 vs april 18 is up almost 5%  ... so yes, this looks good for the u.s.

a couple interesting side notes here.  autos and auto parts are off.   also coal and coke are off. these 2 are often seen as important parts of the economy.  but intermodal is up bigtime.  (this represents end use consumption?).    it is hard to tell how much of this is a catch-up after a bad march.

but at least things are positive for the u.s.a.

traffic is off by 10% for the aussies.  in fact every category is down.

and things are down almost 3% for europe.  (most of this may be a decline of intermodal in the UK). ( not sure here)
