The story of the revitalization of America's railroads after the corporate wreckage of the 1970s. A combination of creatively structured aid from the public sector and talented private management gave railroads new momentum. By 2002 they carried five times the tonnage they had hauled in their former heyday with one-tenth of the employees.
