The paper presents abstracts of articles published in the November 1, 1992 issue of the journal "Transportation Science." The article "Designing Railroad Operating Plans: Dual Adjustment Method for Implementing Lagrangian Relaxation," shows that railroad technology allows a single train, with a single crew to move a large number of individual freight cars. To achieve economies of running long trains, cars bound for many final destinations must be consolidated into trains at rail classification yards. The article "Design of Regular Intercity Driver Route for the LTL Motor Carrier Industry," shows that less-than-truckload (LTL) motor carriers often design regular driver routes to satisfy the 60-80% of the intercity freight transportation demand, which is known to have a high degree of certainty. This enables carriers to provide customers with reliable service, to offer drivers a choice of routes, to improve equipment utilization and to enhance dispatching operations. "Optimal Positioning of Service Units Along a Coordinate Line," shows that location models generally assume that demands are located at discrete locations.
