RAILROAD CORRIDOR CONSOLIDATION-ANALYSES AND IMPLICATIONS
The consolidation of railroad mainlines is analyzed in a benefit/cost format, from the viewpoint of (1) the railroad companies involved, (2) affected shippers and receivers, and (3) the general public. To the extent possible, the analysis is conducted in a quantitative manner. Methods for conducting the analysis are developed and described, in detail, in the form of a manual. The methods are applied to two case studies: one intra-railroad consolidation (on the Seaboard Coastline Railroad) and one inter-railroad consolidation (among the Rock Island and the Milwaukee). The results of the two case studies are documented. The methods presented are evaluated and several generalized observations are drawn.
