dc.description.abstractIn. researching the decline and at.tempted revival of American passenger rail service, I have attempted to pay much attention to the technical. aspects of the passenger train problem in addition to the more often studied economic aspects. Often in-depth analysis of technical issues provides a deeper understanding: of trends which are dealt with too simplistically in only analyzed in statistical and economic terms. Some effort has also been made to provide useful comparisons and examples of the exploits of European and Japanese passenger rail systems. Such examples are necessary to portray the potential of well-developed passenger rail systems, a potential which is too often ignored by Americans because there are, at. present.,no examples of fully up-to-date high-speed rail service in the United States. It is particularly important that the experience of foreign railroads be used advantageously because, as the British. railway expert Geoffrey Freeman Allen notes, it has historically been a common. characteristic of the world's railway experts to ignore the rail technology and experience of other nations.en_US
