86 Guidebook for Implementing Passenger Rail Service on Shared Passenger and Freight Corridors corridor. This approach gives commuter agencies access to the corridor at incremental cost. This provision was superseded in 2008 by the provisions of Section 212 of PRIIA. Zeta-Tech. Estimating Maintenance Costs for Mixed High-Speed Passenger and Freight Railroad Corridors. Technical Monograph prepared for the FRA Office of Railroad Development (April 2004). Detailed discussion of cost sharing methodologies, using an approach that uses engineering analyses to calculate each user's contribution to track wear and degradation.
