LOW PRODUCTIVITY STYMIES RAILROADS

Traditional railroad operating practices are identified as wasteful, competitively inhibiting and a barrier to rehabilitation. Profit analysis of individual services is vital; a systems analysis of batch movement operating economics must follow. Obsolete facilities, operations, labor agreements and regulation have reduced railroad productivity. These factors, coupled with inflation, have made creation of capital difficult at a time when more is urgently needed. These points were made by Robert S. Reebie before a special Senate committee investigation of railroad policy.
