This paper discusses why railroad rights of way linking airports in hub regions by means of dispersed collection and distribution points in urban and suburban areas for processing passengers and their baggage is posed as a potential solution to the critical airport processing and access problem. The creation of a Federal Land Bank to hold in escrow abandoned railroad rights of way and to obtain land outside of metropolitan areas for new large airports is recommended.
