Outline of the 5-year plan for ConRail which reorganizes the eight bankrupt Eastern railroads. Major aspects of the plan include improvements to the physical plant, traffic concentration on major routes, and increased utilization of road and terminal facilities through the elimination of duplication of services. Capital required is almost $1 million per week for the five years. If the operational plan does not work and if the financial plan is inadequate, the possibility exists that ConRail might be nationalized.
