The report is designed to assist the planner-technician in the details of state rail planning. The contents describe recognized planning procedures, present specific analytical methods, provide practical examples of alternative analytical approaches, and identify data sources and reference materials. The seven chapters represent major segments within the rail planning process; they are titled: Organizing for State Rail Planning; Light Density Lines; Mainline Studies; Special Topics; Participation and Coordination; Implementing the State Rail Plan; Rail Planning and the Statewide Transportation Planning Process. Four appendices are included as follows: (A) a final Bibliography; (B) a Glossary of railroads terms which should prove most useful to the planner-technician; (C) a reprint of FRA regulations on rail service assistance; and (D) a reprint of Volume I - Guide to Decision-makers. A separate abstract of Volume I appears there.
