WESTERN COAL TRANSPORTATION--A CHALLENGE
Western coal will be moving by tens of millions of tons south and midwest, and from Wyoming alone 30 to 40 million tons annually are anticipated for export in 1980. Railroad and waterways development, both combined, and construction of coal-slurry pipelines will require a 3 to 5 billion dollars investment to move western coal.
