TRACK ABANDONMENT AND TRACK RETIREMENT

When a line is to be removed, careful planning must determine how and by whom the track will be taken up. While rail and ties constitute the largest quantities of materials to be handled, other track material must be considered along with bridges, culverts, fences, pole line, ballast, buildings and signal equipment. Approaches for main lines and branchlines with some costs are described.
