The country's largest rail company Union Pacific reported a net income of 1.5 billion dollars between April and June, giving them record quarterly earnings. 

The 1.5 billion dollars is a 29 percent increase over the second quarter of 2017. The overall revenue and earnings topped analyst predictions. 

The company says increased industrial traffic offset declines in agriculture and energy shipments.
