GUIDEBOOK FOR PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF URBAN RAILROAD PROBLEMS

The report is the second of four volumes and prepares a methodology for performing future railroad relocation studies. The purposes of Volume 2 are to acquaint community leaders with the problems and opportunities that are presented by planning for railroad relocation, and to enable local government personnel, with assistance from railroad company and highway department sources, to prepare a preliminary estimate of the feasibility for improving a local railroad system--including rough costs, economic consequences, and other community impacts, using minimum resource outlay. Charts, tables, and worksheets aid in estimating costs and impacts of alternative approaches to improving the local railroad system. Volume 1 is an executive summary; Volume 3 is a guidebook for community policymakers and technical specialists for conducting detailed relocation planning projects; and Volume 4 presents a nationwide estimate of the nature and magnitude of urban railroad problems.
