Real railroad solution
Author: NGRX

I'm working on a solution for intermodal rairoads which would involve using short line railroads to begin and end the intermodal traffic.  Short line transload facilities would prestage the loads and they would be aggregated at the hub for the long haul.  We are currently creating the network to make it possible.  We are also currenty looking for investors.  Message me for more information.

Isn't that what Hunt, Swift and Schneider do now? You may find shortlines spun off from class ones are not allowed to originate or terminate intermodal traffic on their lines for interchange. The class one lines want the customers to truck the traffic to the class one intermodal terminals for the line haul.

Good luck with your plan, though.
