RAIL TERMINALS AND THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT A CASE STUDY

With railroads and cities in perilous condition, the author examines the interface, the rail terminal. It is concluded that railroad officials might start to view terminals and their location with the same philosophy as unprofitable routes. Terminals should be abandoned and relocated if costs outweigh revenues. The results of such studies could serve to enhance the city environment. Elimination of rail facilities may make the city a better place to reside. Environmentalists and the public already look at their center-city rail terminals as a blight which needs to be removed.
