Abstract:

A rail and motor outloading study of Fort Irwin, California, located in the Mojave Desert near Barstow, was conducted by the Military Traffic Management Command Transportation Engineering Agency, Newport News, Virginia, during the period 19 through 23 September 1977. The study was to include estimates for expenditures to maintain or upgrade present capabilities, as well as consideration of commercial rail and motor facilities within a 25-mile radius. However, since no rail facilities exist within a 25-mile radius of the installation, those facilities within a 35-mile radius were surveyed. Conversely, no motor outloading facilities exist within a 35-mile radius of Fort Irwin, but the motor facilities on post were examined. Findings and recommendations contained in this report are based on analysis of data obtained during the field study and on other pertinent information relating to installation activities at that time. author
