AN ANALYSIS OF A STRATEGIC RAIL CORRIDOR NETWORK (STRACNET) FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE

This study identifies a Strategic Rail Corridor Network (STRACNET) for peacetime and contingency rail requirements of national defense. Peacetime rail traffic patterns, clearances on various routes, and service to military installations and defense industries are used to produce a rail corridor network of 30,000 miles. Corridors rather than specific lines are identified so individual companies are not advocated in the study. The recommendations are in compliance with requirements of Section 901(3) of the 4R Act.
