TRACKAGE RIGHTS STUDY
The objective of this study is to better quantify the economics of trackage rights agreements (TRA's) and to structure negotiated contracts which are equitable and fair. Maintenance-of-way costs and operating cost factors such as traffic densities and train delays are discussed. Alternative methods for developing TRA costs are given. Eleven current representative trackage rights agreements were reviewed. The major elements of these TRA's are summarized in a table. A pre-negotiation check list of factors for owner and tenant is developed. Models for TRA's for commuter and freight territory are in Appendix C.
