A SOCIAL DECISION-MAKING FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING RAIL SERVICE ABANDONMENT IMPACTS

This paper discusses the analytical technique developed by the State of Wisconsin for its state rail plan to determine the relative social, economic and environmental impacts resulting from rail service discontinuance and to rank rail lines on a priority basis according to net social benefits. This plan, to establish eligibility under the 4R Act, differs from that of the 3R act in methods for qualifying for local rail service continuation subsidies.
