Abstract:

Examines one particular potential high-speed rail line in the United States, looking at the possibility of operating high-speed freight trains to help increase revenues to finance the system. The evaluation includes a look at fixed property, track, terminals, and patronage. The proposed route is examined in some detail. The best types of trains for the route are discussed. The existing conditions, potential line improvements, and development of the proposed line are evaluated. Costs for operating and equipment, particularly fuel, motive power, track and structures are examined.
