ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to present an overall research plan for consideration by the Federal Railroad Administration which would aid the railroad industry in fulfilling its employee training needs. A sample of eight railroads, including both rail labor and management representatives were interviewed to determine the extent of existing training and to gain insights as to a possible role of the Federal Railroad Administration. The major recommendation was that FRA consider the development of a Basic Core Curriculum which would have universal applicability over the railroad system. This recommendation and the thirteen other research recommendations are now under review and consideration.
