WORKING ON THE RAILROADS. ST. LOUIS RAILROAD CONSOLIDATION RELOCATION STUDY

In St. Louis there are 17 main line railroads, 24 main routes and 63 separate yards. In the context of regional planning, a study was undertaken to simplify rail operations, increase efficiency and release some railroad properties for other uses. Since the St. Louis Gateway is the second largest rail terminal in the U.S., the Federal Railroad Administration hopes that a solution for the area could serve as a prototype for similar problems elsewhere. The release of rail properties for other purposes might stimulate new community development patterns. In addition to accomodating present rail operations, any consolidation plan would have to accomodate future growth and this has required forecasts of railroad traffic generally and of what might be generated in the Gateway area.
