Description
Business records of The Peacekeeper Rail Garrison Project, a collaborative project between first class class railroads through the Association of American Railroads, defense contractors and the United States Air Force, which sought to identify locations along railroad right of way that would be suitable for MX missile launches from a train.
Background
class railroads through the Association of American Railroads, defense contractors and the United States Air Force, which sought to identify locations along railroad right of way that would be suitable for MX missile launches from a train. This project relied heavily on Transport Consultants, Inc., a company which was formed by former Southern Pacific Company valuation engineer Lynn D. Farrar and Charles J. McDonald. Because of the work Mr. Farrar had done for the Southern Pacific Company Historical Cost Study, he had a great deal of knowledge about the SP lines, sidings, bridges and other structures important for this project. Other entities involved include the Association of American Railroads, the Federal Railroad Administration, the Defense Mapping Agency, the Defense Contract Audit Agency, Rockwell International, Boeing Defense and Space Group, Aerospace & Electroncis Division, and TRW Inc.
