SERVICE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN INTERSTATE RAIL NETWORK

The central thesis of this paper is that the U.S. rail system can provide a much higher level of service than that which is currently prevalent. It is proposed that railroads endeavor to create an integrated Interstate Rail Network, a system of high-capacity yards connected by well-maintained mainlines which would allow railroads to develop a competitive route structure consistent with the changing service needs of the U.S. economy.
