RESEARCH LOCOMOTIVE AND TRAIN HANDLING EVALUATOR DEFINITION - CONCEPT 1. VOLUME III. ESTIMATED COSTS
Volume III describes the concept definition for a Research Locomotive and Train Handling Evaluator. Volume III presents cost estimates for designing, constructing and installing the Research Evaluator. Support facilities and buildings alongwith appropriate staffing are described but not costed. The Research Evaluator concept provides for growth from a basic facility to the full facility ultimately needed to carry out the FRA research program. Cost estimates are presented for both the basic, entry level facility and the ultimate facility.
