Section 404 of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct a study of emissions of air pollutants from railroad locomotives and secondary rolling stock power sources with respect to: (1) their environmental impact, (2) Methods for control, and (3) the status and effects of state regulations. The results of the study, together with recommendations on appropriate legislative action, were to be reported to the Congress. The report presents the results of the study performed by the EPA for five selected Air Quality Control Regions and the recommendations based upon the findings of the study. The report addresses the environmental impact of railroad emissions, the potential emission reduction techniques, and existing state and local regulations. Also included are background information and computational procedures employed. Also provided are the estimates of costs and cost effectiveness associated with the methods which were considered for reducing railroad emissions.
