United States Railway Association Preliminary System Plan Volume 2
Preliminary System Plan Volume 2
The Preliminary System Plan has been divided into two volumes. A great deal of interest has developed over the issue of light-density, local service rail lines and USRA has given detailed treatment to each line segment under study.
Volume II deals exclusively with the light-density line issue. It is composed of two parts; Part I includes the following:
Chapter 16, The Problem of Light-Density Lines
This chapter discusses the light-density line issue in detail, with particular emphasis on the potential impact upon shippers and communities in the Region. In part, this chapter includes text found in Chapter 7.
Chapter 17, The Light-Density Line Study Procedure
This chapter defines the method used to compare the costs of providing safe and efficient rail service with the actual revenues from existing or projected traffic over each branch line.
Chapter 18, Railroad Marine Operations
This chapter explains the methods used to analyze car ferry operations which, in essence, were considered as light-density branch lines and subject to the same analytical procedures.
Part II includes the following:
Appendix J, Community Impact of Abandonment of Railroad Service
The Public Interest Economics Center, under contract to USRA, considered the relationship of curtailed rail service to job losses and associated increases in unemployment and community benefit costs in the Region. This Appendix summarizes the way these economic effects were analyzed at the individual county level.
Appendix K, Line-by-Line Analysis and Recommendations
This Appendix presents information gathered from railroads, shippers, public officials and the general public which was the basis for recommendations for inclusion of specific light-density line segments in the ConRail system.
