Maryland Railway Gross At HighPoint Western Maryland Railway has estimated its -gross operating revenues for 1948 at $44,854,000. a new high for that company. This was an increase of seven per cent over gross revenue of $42,984,543 .reported for the previous year. Largest gain was made in miscellaneous freight revenues which were flgnred at around $22,565,000 for the past year, up 15 per cent over 519,695,723 for 1947. Coal and coke freight revenues, put at $20,614,000, were one per cent higher than, the 1947 total of 520,455,249. December was the only month in 1948, to show a decrease in operating revenues from .a. year earlier. Gross for that month was estimated at S3.712.000, down one per cent torn $3,746,893 in 1947.. • The December dip was caused by a 10 per cent slide in coal freight revenues reflecting a contraction of exports and large stockpiles at factories. This drop was not quite offset by.a rise of eight per cent in other freight revenues for December. Net income for the year -was tentatively figured at around $6,000,000 or S3J.81 a share on the 177,420 shares of seven per cent- cumulative first preferred stock, in arrears as to dividends.
