In this study an attempt has been made to assess the railway freight flow between the largest traffic centres in Canada. The "Waybill Analysis, Carload All Rail Traffic, 1971" formed the basis of this exercise. It is a one percent sample of all domestic carload movements. The material extracted consisted of detailed transportation characteristics for 27,487 carloads, the movement of which was traced between individual Canadian stations for each of a number of selected commodities.
