SUBTITLE: THE SAME GOALS THAT RAILROADS HOPED TO ACHIEVE IN 1883 BY TRANSITIONING TO STANDARD TIME -- ACCOUNTABILITY, RELIABILITY, BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE -- ARE NOW COMING FULL CIRCLE AS TODAY'S SMALLER RAILROADS ARE INTEGRATING WITH CLASS I'S AND SHIPPERS TO PROVIDE TIME- DEFINITE SERVICES AND SEAMLESS SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY. "REAL TIME" RATHER THAN "RAILROAD TIME" IS DRIVING FREIGHT RAILROADS INTO THE NEW CENTURY.
