Description


This second volume of High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering 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 and terminals and patronage. The proposed route is examined in some detail and the best types of trains for the route are also discussed. The author brings attention to existing conditions, potential line improvements, and development of the proposed line, as well as costs for operating and equipment, particularly fuel, motive power, track and structures.
