"The railways are a growth industry," says the foreword to the 1970-1971 edition of this 686-page volume. Noting that a population growth of 4% annually would virtually double transportation requirements over a decade, Sampson sees a greater role for railways in the years ahead. However, increased business is not automatically assured and certainly cannot be traditionally handled. The 13th Edition contains a 177-page Supply Industry section, a 450-page Operating Industry section, and a 48-page Rapid Transit section.
