- The contention of the Association of American Railroads (AAR) that special trains are necessary for handling spent fuel is discussed. These special trains would not move faster than 35 mph nor carry any nonradioactive freight. When a special train meets, passes, or is passed by another train, one train would stand still while the other moves past at a speed of less than 35 mph. The shippers feel these special trains are not necessary and that they would increase the cost of transporting spent fuel possible alternatives to the current standoff between railroads and shippers of radioactive material are mentioned.
