NATIONAL RAILROAD POLICY: WHICH WAY IS UP?
Two volumes contain proceedings of two series of hearings on railroad policy and problems. The first series considered freight service, ability to generate capital and jobs, and productivity, including charges of mismanagement of Conrail, effects of government regulation and subsidy to competitors, and causes of the Midwest rail crisis. The second series concentrated on possible abandonment of Milwaukee Road in Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana including the only main-line trackage in South Dakota and included proposals for a viable core system in this region.
