In developing the relationship between railroads and the states, the author observes that states need to build a knowledge of railroads because most of them have little understanding of railroad problems. The states need also to undertake rail planning and research as part of the overall planning process. Although the railroads, as private enterprise, occupy a different relationship to the transportation planning process than publicly owned systems such as highways and airports, the states are sincerely looking to railroads for cooperative planning in the creation of multi-modal transportation systems for both goods and people that would be more efficient than what exists now.
