ELECTRIFICATION AND RAILROAD ORGANIZATION AND OPERATIONS

While predicting electrification of mainline railroads in the western states, the author assesses the causes of the present wait-and-see attitude as uncertainty over federal energy policy, the high initial capital investment in facilities and locomotives, the restricted service applications, and the necessity of a high volume of traffic. Advantages which could accrue from such a stop are also summarized.
