THE ENERGY SITUATION--A RAIL VIEWPOINT

This brief article presents a rail viewpoint of the energy crisis. Although much has been made of the energy crisis benefiting railroads, several facts must be considered. Higher crude oil prices have raised fuel prices for railroads. Railroads do not have the capacity to handle the bonanza predicted by some. Freight cars are scarce, and extra passenger cars simply do not exist. Some routes are limited in track capacity.
