What is "demurrage"?
Rail demurrage - applies to all freight cars actually or constructively placed for loading or unloading.

Demurrage refers to the charges that a railroad, like TRRA, bills to industries for the amount of time the industry is in possession of a rail car. By tariff, if a car is placed at an industry after 7 AM on a given day, the industry gets the rest of that day and two additional days of free time during which to load or unload the car. After this time has expired, the railroad can bill for demurrage charges.
