These are the railroads that cannot die, says the author, yet they cannot continue to exist under present conditions and controls. Commuters to the big cities call them the "Morning Hotshot", "Cannon Ball", Banker's special", and economists call them an impossible drain on the public conscience. They are kept running by various financial gymmnastics and temporary relief measures... yet as Dorin points out they must be kept running in light of highway congestion and mushrooming city population. The future demands their sound operation because they are the nations most traveled railroads. Cities covered in "Commuter Railroads" are Boston, New York, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh, Montreal and Toronto. Lines covered in "Commuter Railroads" are Long Island, Penn Central, Boston & Maine, Erie & Lackawanna, Reading, Central Railroad of New Jersey, Pennsylvania Reading Seashore, Pittsburgh and Lake Erie, Baltimore & Ohio, Chicago & Northwestern, The Milwaukee Road, Burlington Route, Rock Island, Illinois Central, Chicago South Shore & South Bend, Gulf Mobile & Ohio, Norfolk & Western, Southern Pacific, Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, Government of Ontario Transit, and Grand Trunk Western.
