Abstract:

An onsite rail and motor outloading study of Fort Drum, New York, was conducted by the Military Traffic Management Command Transportation Engineering Agency, Newport News, Virginia, during the period 7 through 10 August 1978. The principal objective of the study was to determine the capability of the Fort Drum rail system to support the deployment of a mobilized armored division and support-type units. Another objective was to identify any physical improvement, as well as any suitable commercial rail facilities, within Watertown, New York, which would significantly increase the current capability. This study includes the findings of a Federal Railway Administration FRA inspector, who inspected all trackage at Fort Drum during the period 15 to 16 August 1978. author
