The article reports that Kansas City Southern (KCS) will redesign its federal loan request with focus on delivering broad public benefits as of March 2011. The Class I railroad operator's original request was a debt-refinancing application for 125 million dollars from the Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing Program (RRIF). The company will now ask for a long-term, low-interest federal credit for different capital projects that consider government priorities, such as green locomotives.
