The Way To Go Coming revival of US Rail Passenger Service By Thomas Southerland Jr. Dust Jacket 1973 256 pages Indexed,
The Way To Go is not just a book; it's an exciting trip into America's transportation future. The United States could have railroad passenger service comparable to the best in the world, and could have it quite soon. The technology exists; the rails exist; the rights-of-way exist; and the passengers exist. Also, concern about preservation of our ecology exists-another factor favoring railroads over other means of transportation.
Here is a very different book about public transportation, a book which for the first time gives Americans realistic hope that a new day may be dawning for rail passenger service. It has, in fact, begun: the new Lindenwold Line from Philadelphia to the South New Jersey suburbs; the Bay Area Rapid Transit System for San Francisco and its sister cities; new developments on the Washington-New York-Boston run. These developments and more are recounted, along with a history of how and why rail passenger service has been dying out in the U.S., what it is like in other countries, how we can overcome the problems that have been holding up improvement here, and what is now beginning to happen. Here is an optimistic book about railroads that will be good news to harassed commuters and long-distance travelers, as well as to those concerned with our national ecology.
