RAIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS-THAT HELP US MEET OUR ENERGY REQUIREMENTS

In direct relation with Economics of Energy, Energy and Power Systems, and Energy Management is transportation of potential energy. Within the scope of the United States energy movement, the railroads play and will continue to play a vital role, since coal is our major energy source for the present as well as for the future. The only way these huge amounts of coal can be moved over our railroad network is through the establishment of a "System's Approach" to transportation and handling of bulk material. This paper will discuss these existing systems as well as expected improvements.
