INTERCITY FREIGHT MOVEMENT BY RAIL AND HIGHWAY
The four authors examine various aspects of rail freight service, especially in comparison to movement by truck. Morton examines the changing markets that characterize the American economy and their effects on rail freight transportation. Deboer looks at ways in which railroads might improve service and capital utilization without increasing long-run total costs. Blaze examines the rail plant and traffic trends in city areas, using the Chicago region as a case study. Fuller discusses the abandonment of railroad lines from the standpoint of state government, suggesting a role for states in analyzing both major and and minor abandonment proposals.
