AN EXAMINATION OF THE INLAND TERMINALS APPROACH IN RATIONALIZING THE PRAIRIE GRAIN HANDLING AND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

Since the announcement of the intended construction of a 4.7 million-dollar inland terminal elevator at Weyburn, a great deal of controversy has developed on the subject of the terminal system. The purpose of this report from the University's standpoint, then, was to provide more accurate information and to help people understand the situation. Therefore this report discusses such areas as the economic evaluation of the terminal concept, the feasibility of the terminal from users' point of view, and the evaluation of inland terminals in a system's cost framework. /TRRL/
