The technical approach recommended for the SmartWay railroad model was developed to encourage railroad participation by providing methods to calculate emissions, fuel consumption, and comparison metrics based, to the extent possible, based on data the participating railroad companies have on hand and provide annually to the Department of Transportation's Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). For example, the approach presented uses data elements that Class 1 railway companies submit in their annual R-1 reports. Class I Railroad companies can use their most recent R-1 data for this SmartWay Tool. The relevant data reported annually to the FRA's R-1 forms include: Power Unit Information - Form 710; Locomotive Unit Miles - Form 755, lines 8-14; Railcar Miles by Type - Form 755, lines 15-84; Fuel Consumption by Fuel Type and Unit Type - Form 750, lines 1-3, and Ton-Mile Data - Form 755, lines 104, 110, 113.
