Lately the Union Pacific trains heading west towards Council Bluffs, IA, through Omaha seem to have been significantly shorter than usual. Is this something that should be a cause for concern?

Possibly a harbinger of economic downturn. :( What types of trains appear to be most affected. I know coal's down.
Coal trains aren’t really any shorter, but if they’ve been less frequent, I wouldn’t have noticed. A lot of manifests and intermodal are what seem to be getting shorter.
