DOT'S NORTHEAST PROPOSALS RIDE INTO A STORM

The railways that are affected by the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973 have reacted strongly against the proposed abandonment of 15,575 miles of track and the rationalization of yards and facilities. The solvent railways are afraid that they will join the bankrupt lines if the proposed Consolidated Rail Corp. (Conrail) is allowed to, in effect, nationalize the major railways in the Northeast and Midwest. The article describes the reaction of seven railways that will be affected.
