In the coming months, a number of decisions, implemented by acts of Congress, will almost without doubt, make obsolete some of the observations which this, and other papers in the series, present. However, regardless of the specific actions that may be taken in the near future, there are certain general forces and trends which are basic to the prospects for American railroads.
