Productivity in U.S. Railroads documents the proceedings of a symposium held at Princeton University on July 27-28, 1977, concerning the problem areas and rehabilitation of the railroads in U.S. to help improve productivity. This compilation is divided into four parts. The first part tackles the work rules in the railroad industry, including the types and those rules affected by government intervention. This part also discusses productivity, specifically the issues concerning the crews and the labor management. This text goes on explaining the rehabilitation of tracks and its implications for economic productivity. The last two parts discuss the utilization of equipment and the intermodal cooperation and competition. This book will benefit government officials concerned with public railroads, civil engineering students, shippers, and investment community.
