RAILWAY INVESTMENT: THE PARTS AND THE WHOLE

This additional paper for the IRCA/UIC Congress to be held in Stockholm from 7-12 May 1979 suggests a method of selecting railway investment projects taking account of the latest official thinking in the UK public sector, particularly of the White Paper on the Nationalised Industries of March 1978. In Part One, the writer refers to the traditional framework; in Part Two, he discusses risk and uncertainty and lastly, he deals with programme control and the relationship between the Railway's financial target and the discount rate.
