RAILROADS SURVIVED A DISASTROUS YEAR, BUT AT WHAT COST

The results of 1975 in the railroad industry are discussed. The effects of the recession on traffic and service are examined. While fourth quarter earnings erased the nine- month deficit, earnings for the year were the worst since the Depression of the 1930s. Other areas discussed include freight rates, capital expenditures, management/labor relations; competitive transportation; transportation policy; legislation; reorganization; merger activity; rail safety and passenger service.
