American railroads : decline and renaissance in the twentieth century by Robert E Gallamore( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once an icon of American industry, railroads fell into a long decline beginning around the turn of the twentieth century. Overburdened with regulation and often displaced by barge traffic on government-maintained waterways, trucking on interstate highways, and jet aviation, railroads measured their misfortune in lost market share, abandoned track, bankruptcies, and unemployment. Today, however, as Robert Gallamore and John Meyer demonstrate, rail transportation is reviving, rescued by new sources of traffic and advanced technology, as well as less onerous bureaucracy. In 1970, Congress responded to the industry's plight by consolidating most passenger rail service nationwide into Amtrak. But private-sector freight service was left to succeed or fail on its own. The renaissance in freight traffic began in 1980 with the Staggers Rail Act, which allowed railroad companies to contract with customers for services and granted freedom to set most rates based on market supply and demand. Railroads found new business hauling low-sulfur coal and grain long distances in redesigned freight cars, while double-stacked container cars moved a growing volume of both international and domestic goods. Today, trains have smaller crews, operate over better track, and are longer and heavier than ever before. Near the end of the twentieth century, after several difficult but important mergers, privately owned railroads increased their investments in safe, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly freight transportation. American Railroads tells a riveting story about how this crucial U.S. industry managed to turn itself around."--Publisher's description

Moving to market : restructuring transport in the former Soviet Union by John S Strong( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1992, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development commissioned four studies of rail, road, air, and water transport in the republics of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. This book combines these studies in a comprehensive assessment of transport at the advent of transition from centrally-planned to market economics. Energy, trade, and environmental policies, in the context of central planning, resulted in the world's most transport-intensive economy. The transition economies represent a distinct type of transport environment, with adequate physical capacity but lacking in many dimensions of service and quality. This book assesses key policy issues, restructuring needs, and organizational changes facing each sector in the transition to a market-oriented transport system
