DERAILMENTS: THE PROBLEM ONLY DOLLARS CAN SOLVE
The purpose of the study described was to develop the condition of the railroad plant in the United States with respect to tie and rail replacement. The study involved the use of a computer program to determine the long-term maintenance-of-way requirements of railroads and to estimate the amount of deferred maintenance which exists on the railroads. The analysis was made for 25 railroads having a total of 236,000 miles of track.
