The report is a case study showing how a railroad might calculate an internal rate of return for an investment project involving the replacement or rebuilding of worn-out equipment. Although the technical approach and format of the analysis conform to the requirement of Federal Railroad Administration regulations governing the Title V financial assistance program, the approach is applicable to any asset replacement analysis.
