The following are a selection of free articles, reports, or studies about the the U.S. Railroad industry and its workers:

  National Rail Plan [Excerpts]

In the United States today, two distinctly different rail systems exist: freight railroads and passenger railroads.
  • Freight railroads are privately owned and operated; they are in business to make a profit for their stockholders.
  • Passenger railroads are publicly subsidized by taxpayers; they provide a public service by offering a safe and environmentally friendly travel option.
  • Investment in higher quality rail service will attract an increasing share of business from shippers and from traveling passengers.
  • Industry and government, working together, must develop and harness new technologies to further improve rail safety, productivity, and performance.
