The subject of run-through-trains (and pre-blocking) is given special attention by RSPO because it involves coordination techniques by railroads which are capable of attaining a portion of the advantages generally ascribed to mergers without going through the merger process. This report expands the discussion contained under Section 11 of Merger Issues paper No. 7, Alternatives to Merger.
