The railroad network in Minnesota has undergone major changes in recent years. Knowing the status of the network and being able to predict future changes and directions depend on having a comprehensive and accessible source of rail information. The implementation of a computerized railroad information system in Minnesota in 1981 is helping to ease the information and decision-making needs of the state's transportation planners. A synopsis is given of the system's computer records, data files, and data elements and of uses of the information.
