A RAIL INVENTORY OF THE NORTHEAST AND MIDWEST UNITED STATES

Bechtel Incorporated's primary role in the survey of rail facilities under the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973 was that of technical direction contractor. Using input from the United States Railroad Association and five other associate contractors, Bechtel established administrative and procedural guidelines to assure consistency in work performed and to rationalize the data gathered. The result was a quantitative and qualitative inventory and assessment of the rail facilities to determine condition, identify required rehabilitation work and materials and estimate the cost of rehabilitation. In the inventory was trackwork, yards, shops, bridges, tunnels, buildings, terminals, signals, communications, servicing facilities and motive power.
