USRA'S MASTER PLAN: BIG, BOLD AND EXPENSIVE

The $10 billion revamping of the Northeastern rail map and recommendations of the U.S. Railway Association for the 15,000-mile ConRail system are discussed. There would be $7.3 billion for the rehabilitation and expansion of the car fleets and trackage of the eight bankrupts of the region and additional expenditures for converting the Northeast Corridor mainline to an exclusive high-speed passenger system. These are among the recommendations of the 820-page "Preliminary System Plan" of the USRA.
