CSX's earnings per share declined 18% year-over-year in Q1 primarily as a result of a decline in revenue driven by lower coal shipments and lower fuel surcharge revenue. Though the company's cost reduction initiatives and lower volume related operating expenses partially offset the impact of top line headwinds on the operating ratio (operating expenses as a percent of revenue), the net impact was a 90 basis point deterioration in the operating ratio.
