Railway Costs and Productivity Growth. The Case of the Republic of Ireland

This paper measures productivity growth in Irish railways for the period 1973-83, using a translog cost approach. Results show that there has been substantial growth in productivity, because of reductions in fleet size and labour and increases in traffic. Changes in freight handling were also shown to be significant.
