Measurements of railroad yard and right-of-way noise levels were conducted to provide data support to the recent interstate railcarrier regulation promulgated by the Office of Noise Abatement and Control of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. It was primarily intended to augment the existing data base on these types of railroad operations. Supplemental and subordinate project objectives were to determine the instrumentation, manpower, and cost requirements, to develop and test a measurement procedure and to evaluate the reliability and accuracy of human identification of noise sources.
