Government regulation of American railroads has always been controversial. Trains has covered the changing circumstances for decades, long before the Staggers Act of 1980 deregulated U.S. railroads and set the stage for the modern system we know today. Read more about the history of regulation in America, the impact of the Interstate Commerce Commission, and important analyses from railroaders about the need for change in this TRAINS Express PDF package.
