Description: Managing Railroad Transportation is the third volume in the series on railroad operation. The two volumes of Elements of Train Dispatching discuss railroad operation and transportation management from the point of view of the train dispatcher. Managing Railroad Transportation goes on to the next level, discussing control center management functions, once the domain of the chief dispatcher.

An understanding of train dynamics fundamentals (the interaction among grades, curves, tonnage, tractive effort, and horsepower) is essential to railroad transportation management. The authors have more than 56 years of railroading experience between them.
Illustrations include diagrams and tables illustrating the concepts of traffic, crew, and equipment management..
