ICC RELEASES COMPUTER PROGRAMS FOR NEW RAIL COST ACCOUNTING SYSTEM

URCS, developed by the ICC Bureau of Accounts and its Section of Systems Development, replaces the Rail Form A to determine the cost of providing freight service for rate making purposes. URCS programs, written in Fortran 10, are run on a DEC-10 computer but can be programmed for other types. URCS Phase I encompasses statistical regression and analysis; Phase II contains worktables based on 1978 data from all Class I railroads. The required rail data base for all reporting Class I railroads is also available.
