Planning Freight Railways

01 Feb 2004

Edited by Nigel G Harris and Felix Schmidt

The editors of this handbook set out to bring together in a single volume the key material needed by railfreight practitioners, policymakers and transport students, as well as companies which are considering sending freight by rail for the first time.

The 246 pages contain articles by specialists in their fields. The range of topics covered provides information needed to understand modern rail freight economics and operations, the practical details to enable specific flows to be planned, and discuss the underlying concepts to help develop a deep understanding of the subject.

The book mainly covers the British situation, but the authors' international experience allows best practice from around the world to be highlighted.

How Transit Benefits People Who Do Not Ride It: A Conservative Inquiry

by Paul M Weyrich and

William S Lind

This short booklet from the US think-tank the Free Congress Foundation presents a series of arguments which can be used to encourage those voters who do not directly use public transport to support light rail proposals when they are put forward in local referenda.

Taking a free-market but pro-light rail ideological viewpoint, Weyrich and Lind put forward a series of examples from North America demonstrating that even people who do not regularly ride on a light rail route will benefit from reduced congestion, increases in property values, and an improved environment.
