Railroads, our first large corporations, are still hauling the freight and keeping the country moving as we approach the 21st century. The last decade has seen substantial deregulation, along with basic changes in federal law relating to the railroad industry. In this book, the authors cover the law relating to freight and passenger service, railway labor, abandonment and spinoffs to short lines, and railroad mergers and consolidations. This book is an important reference book for the lawyer or railroad enthusiast. The contents are presented in the following chapters: (1) Railroad Regulation and Deregulation; (2) The Short Line Rail Industry; (3) Railroad Rationalization and Restructuring; (4) Legal Issues Affecting Railroad Employment; (5) Labor Protection on the Railroads; (6) Labor-Management Relations; (7) Railroad Passenger Service; (8) The New Rail Regime in Canada; and (9) Clear Track Ahead: U.S. Railroading in the Twenty-First Century. A selected bibliography and an index are provided.
