In its simplest form, the operations of a railroad can be split into two disciplines: line of road operations and terminal operations. This chapter focuses on the management of line of road operations. Railroad management devotes the largest amount of analytic effort to this discipline, and tools exist for its analysis. Most railroads and many consulting firms have staffs dedicated to using tools to analyze line of road operation and justify capital improvements.
