RAIL CAR ROUTES AND FUEL CONSERVATION

With fuel conservation in mind, this paper discusses fuel implications of routing rail freight cars by more direct and "fuel-efficient" routes, rather than by those which are circuitous and less fuel efficient. It is suggested that both shippers and railroads need voluntarily to be conscious of fuel conservation needs as they determine routings for rail cars.
