Overview

Reproductions of 28 articles published between 1938 and 1998, but mostly in the 1980s and 1990s, were selected to cover issues thought important in understanding the economic, commercial, and policy analysis of rail transport in industrialized countries. Engineering and operational issues are not covered. Despite the title of the series, the articles most widely considered classic are not included, especially when a more recent paper covers the same issues to greater advantage. Little known papers are also included if deemed to make an important contribution to the present day analysis. The sections cover costs and productivity, pricing, regulation and privatization, economic rail demand models, disaggregate choice modelling, and investment. There is no subject index. Annotation c.
