RAIL AND RAIL-TRUCK TERMINALS: AN OPPORTUNITY IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

This paper examines the rail plant and traffic trends in city areas. The 4,800-square mile Chicago region is used as a case study for railroads in urban markets. The location of railroad piggyback facilities is the principal topic covered since it is the author's hypothesis that the modernization of urban railplant can best be planned by the conscious implementation of stronger intermodal rail services and government policies toward such services.
