MOW '08: More Capacity's a Priority for a Majority of Respondents to our 7th Annual Maintenance-of-Way Survey

This article presents Progressive Railroading's seventh annual maintenance of way (MOW) survey of 55 Class I railroads, regional and short-line railroads, and passenger railroads. The top infrastructure priority that is being addressed in the budgets is capacity. Profiles and statistics are given for 8 Class I railroads, 25 regionals and short lines, and 22 passenger railroads. For each of the railroads, the profiles include information on the 2008 and 2007 MOW budgets; reasons for increase or decrease in the budgets; areas of focus, such as rail, sidings, grinding/surfacing, ties, ballast, bridge work, and station or facility projects, and if available, the focus of the MOW program.
