RAILROADS IN TRANSITION: MERGING WITH A FUTURE

The end-to-end merger movement has developed as a means of producing single-line service to new markets. DOT and ICC are often apparently pursing differing policies with respect to redundant railroad plant. In view of the generally poor record of parallel mergers, new attention is being given to consolidated facilities and voluntary abandonment of certain markets. Reduced regulation, rather than government ownership of fixed plant is suggested as a means of strengthening the industry and improving its performance.
