ABSTRACT: The truck productivity improvements derived from the 1982 Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA'82) and the possible introduction of a Longer Combination Vehicle (LCV) network will have a negative impact on the U.S. railroad industry, trucking's primary competitor. This report presents the likely effects on the railroad industry of both the STAA'82 and an LCV network.
