THE FEDERAL CLIMATE GETS WARMER

In recent months and especially since the energy crisis, Washington has become much more willing to listen to railway problems and solutions. Railways are also making more efforts to be heard. In 1970 the ASTRO program was begun to advertise the condition of railways to the government and public. As well, railway companies are beginning to maintain their own Washington offices to lobby for them. However, the most important reason for Washington's interest is due to the political climate that reflects from the public opinion. This attitude will last probably through 1974 but no one can say what will happen after that.
