THE IMPACTS ON COMMUNITIES OF ABANDONMENT OF RAILROAD SERVICE. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The problem of identifying community impacts is predominantly an economic one. The discontinuance of rail service deprives a community of an economic asset - an asset that is complementary to the existing stock of labor, land, capital facilities and equipment. It is tracing and measuring the consequence of this change in production possibilities that comprises the essential problem to which the study is addressed. Includes bibliographical references.
