In accordance with BNSF's Industrial Products Rate Calendar, unit train aggregate shipments into
Dallas/Fort Worth and Memphis will take price increases effective April 1, 2008. All unit train
rates previously contained in BNSF 90064 have been moved to BNSF 80025.

Rates for traffic terminating in Dallas/Fort Worth will increase $25 per unit. Memphis rates will take a four percent (4%) increase.

Rates for traffic terminating in Houston, Lubbock, Slaton, and Hereford markets will take increases effective May 15, 2008. Increases will average six percent (6%) for trains with 87 cars and above, with increases varying in individual lanes.

As previously discussed, rate spreads between 60 car trains and trains with greater than 87 cars terminating in Houston are being increased. On average, rates for 60 car trains will be increasing by fifteen percent (15%). Individual lane rates may vary.

Based on customer feedback, we are also reviewing the date for implementing future rate increases in unit train markets and the option of taking increases more than once per year. Customers will be notified in advance of any changes.
