WHAT ARE REASONABLE UNIT TRAIN COAL TARIFFS: AN ATTORNEY'S PERSPECTIVE

The history of freight rate regulation in the case of captive traffic is discussed in the light of legislation from 1887 to 1976. The author urges that rates on unit train coal movements be fixed at a level which will both cover the variable costs of providing the service and make a fair contribution towards constant costs and a reasonable profit.
