Excerpt from Railroad Operating Costs, Arranged to Include the Operations of 1911, Vol. 2: A Continuation of Studies in Operating Costs of the Leading American Railroads Such a criticism is eminently just and under it the authors of this compilation must lie for some time, as it is manifestly impossible to complete in a short time such extensive studies covering so many comparisons of various items of costs and to include in these comparisons even all the larger roads. Nevertheless, the work is progressive and is progressing. In presenting this, the second volume, the authors feel that they can claim that they have advanced somewhat along the paths marked out. The text is recrystallized from a portion of the original material, strengthened and amplified by a great store of new matter, the result of close study since the first edition was prepared; also the arrangement of matter has been materially changed in several respects. The highly important classification of Maintenance of Equipment is treated of in four chapters instead of in one, as in the first volume. The three additional chapters on Freight Car Maintenance, Locomotive Maintenance and Passenger Car Maintenance embody the results of very careful research, and it is believed that the information thus presented will be of high value, especially as the charts illustrating Locomotive performance for the four years 1908-1911 (inclusive) cover thirty-sub leading roads, many of which were not mentioned in the first volume. Five charts reflecting Passenger Car performance on forty leading roads are shown in place of two charts of fourteen roads in the first volume. In the chapter of Maintenance of Way and Structures, a new and important unit of cost determination has been introduced, viz., the Locomotive Tractive Mile, which is believed to be a far more logical unit than that which has been employed previously. The eighth chapter on Fuel Costs is entirely new. The text contains much of what is believed to be wholly original information with respect to locomotive performance under a great variety of conditions and according to various types of structure and classifications. It is not known that such records have been produced before and the information therein presented is at once important and progressive. Those who are interested in the conservation of our natural resources will be pleased to observe in what manner and to what degree better locomotive performance will serve to reduce coal consumption, while the facts adduced will be of interest to the builders of locomotives and superheating devices. This chapter is illustrated by eleven charts wholly original in their character and subject matter. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The report asserts the probability of future widespread abandonments of branchline rail freight service. It stipulates the circumstances in which abandonments are most likely to occur, and assesses the negative impacts that may result. It is suggested that short line railroad operations may be an alternative to the complete loss of rail service. The report describes the savings that may accrue through a changeover from major railroad ownership to short line operation. Alternative institutional and financial mechanisms for establishing and operating short line roads are discussed. A broad description of capital and operating costs is given. Finally, several examples are provided of successful short line operations in the United States.

Cities across the globe are looking to develop affordable, environmentally friendly, and socially responsible transportation solutions that can meet the accessibility needs of expanding metropolitan populations and support future economic and urban development. When appropriately planned and properly implemented as part of a larger public transportation network, urban rail systems can provide rapid mobility and vital access to city centers from surrounding districts. High-performing urban rail services, when carefully approached as development projects, can help enhance quality of life by giving citizens access to employment opportunities, essential services, urban amenities, and neighboring communities. The purpose of this Handbook is to synthesize and disseminate knowledge to inform the planning, implementation, and operations of urban rail projects with a view towards: -- Emphasizing the need for early studies and project planning; -- Making projects more sustainable (economically, socially, and environmentally); -- Improving socioeconomic returns and access to opportunities for users; -- Maximizing the value of private participation, where appropriate; and -- Building capacity within project implementing and managing institutions This Handbook provides experiential advice to tackle the technical, institutional, and financial challenges faced by decision makers considering urban rail projects. It brings together the expertise of World Bank staff and the input of numerous specialists to synthesize international 'good practices' and recommendations that are independent of commercial, financial political, or other interests. The material presented is intended as an honest-broker guide to maximize the impact and manage the challenges of urban rail systems in cities in both developed and developing countries. Rather than identify a single approach, this Handbook acknowledges the complexities and context necessary when approaching an urban rail development by helping to prepare decision makers to ask the right questions, consider the key issues, perform the necessary studies, apply adequate tools, and learn from international good practice all at the right time in the project development process.
