PREFACE
Railroad Facts was born in 1924 when its predecessor, Railroad Facts, For the Farmer, For the Railroad Man, For the Business Man, was published by the Western Railways' Committee on Public Relations. In 1927 the title was changed to Railroad Facts, A Yearbook of Railroad Information. In 1929 and 1930 the same publication was printed by both the Western Railways' Committee on Public Relations and the Committee on Public Relations of the Eastern Railroads, until the latter took sole possession of the cover's byline in 1931. In 1953 the byline was changed to the Eastern Railroad Presidents' Conference. It stayed that way until 1965, when the Association of American Railroads (AAR) assumed responsibility for the publication and changed the title to Yearbook of Railroad Facts. Finally, in 1983 the AAR changed the title to its current form, Railroad Facts.
In spite of the changes in title and publisher, the type of information presented in Railroad Facts has remained virtually unchanged. The publication is a timely, pocket-sized, and relatively quick-and-easy-to-use reference of major indicators of railroad performance. While comprehensive in scope, it does not provide the detail found in some other AAR publications and data bases such as:
1. Analysis of Class I Railroads: Annual publication of detailed financial and operating statistics, by railroad and summarized by district and the United States.
2. Railroad Ten-Year Trends: Annual publication containing over 200 tables and graphs describing Class I, Regional and Local railroad economics over the past 10 years.
3. Freight Commodity Statistics: Annual publication identifying gross freight revenues, tonnage and carloads to 5-digit STCC level for Class I railroads.
4. Profiles of U.S. Railroads: Comprehensive data base and personal computer program, based on an annual survey of all U.S. freight railroads. Updated annually.
5. Revenues, Expenses and Income: Quarterly publication detailing financial data for Class I railroads.
