OBSERVATIONS ON THE COST, PRESENT AND ANTICIPATED, ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH SPEED RAIL TRANSPORTATION

The report is a synthesis of data, published and otherwise, commenting on costs related primarily to the construction and maintenance of present high speed train routes or those envisioned for near and longer term future. Some of the social factors supporting the concept of high speed train service are explored. Results of recent model studies of a region's transportation demands for the next two decades are reviewed and the anticipated role of the rail mode described. (DOT abstract)
