The Milwaukee Road has been financially weak for over a half century. Its attempts at merger have been rebuffed. Investment in net loss branch lines and in many low-density mainlines and yards is the underlying cause of the low earning power. Some coordination with parallel railroads has been achieved but the line abandonment procedures of the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 are more restrictive than those of the prior law which has inhibited Milwaukee from large-scale branch line abandonment.
