ROLE OF SAFETY AND TRAIN SPEED IN TRACK MAINTENANCE SPENDING DECISIONS: A CASE ANALYSIS

This article reports the results of a comprehensive case study of railroad decision-making with regard to the selection of speed limits and associated levels of scheduled track maintenance (T/M) expenditures on individual lines of road. The focus, in particular, is on relationships between safety (track standards and accidents), train speeds (including economic incentives that influence train speed), and levels of T/M spending.
