ANALYSIS OF COMMUNITY IMPACTS RESULTING FROM LOSS OF RAIL SERVICE, VOL I: DOCUMENTATION

Volume I: Documentation. This four volume study describes a method for estimating the community impacts of the loss of railroad freight service. This study was done in direct response to Section 202(b)(5) of P.L. 93-236 which requires that USRA consider such "anticipated economic, social, and environmental costs and benefits" of rail-line abandonment that may result from consolidation, relocation, pooling and joint operation of facilities and equipment. The study documents methodology developed for estimating community impact and presents the results of applications of the methodology to twenty communities. Included in the study is a guidebook designed for state and community use in estimating impacts on potentially affected communities.
