INVENTORY AND ASSESSMENT PROJECT FOR RAIL SERVICES IN MIDWEST AND NORTHEAST REGION: SUMMARY COST ESTIMATE

Bechtel Incorporated and five associate contractors conducted a general inventory of the fixed plant of the railroads in reorganization. These contractors examined the general physical condition of the plant, identified the rehabilitation work necessary to bring the rail system to a specified condition, and estimated the costs for such rehabilitation. In addition, the accuracy of the existing railroad records was reviewed. The total inventory is serving as a basis for developing a rehabilitation work plan. Bechtel Inc. also served as the Technical Direction Contractor to coordinate the activities of the associate contractors and this document spells out the cost estimates, forms used, and approaches taken.
