ENERGY REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MOVEMENT OF INTERCITY FREIGHT RAILROADS

In August 1971, Battelle-Columbus completed a report to the Association of American Railroads in which the current and future environmental impact of intercity freight traffic was examined for both rail and motor-truck transportation. This report includes estimates of direct engine-exhaust emissions. It should be recognized that this emissions-analysis methodology can be used also as a basis for estimating the energy requirements for freight movement and that, in view of recent concern for national expenditure of nonreplaceable energy resources, it is appropriate to conduct such an analysis. This brief report is submitted in response to AAR's request for such an analysis.
