This Special Bibliography prepared from the magnetic-tape files of the Railroad Research Information Service, contains selections which were accessioned between 1973 and 1976. Although the literature in a few cases dates back three decades, all listings are considered pertinent to contemporary railroad safety problems. The volume is divided into three main categories: Improved track structures research; Rail vehicle safety research; and Improved inspection, detection and testing research. There are 4,368 listings, involving 3,131 abstracts of research reports and journal articles, and descriptions of computer programs with some individual citations. The categories are based on the functional responsibilities of the groups comprising the staff of the FRA Office of Rail Safety Research.
