Are you interested in doing some research about the transportation
infrastructure of this nation? TIP needs people to dig up facts and
references, to write papers based on that material, and to obtain
permission to post to the TIP web site works from other authors that
have writen on this topic.
Most philosophies, ideas and proposals that you read from TIP are founded
on quite a bit of reading of the history of the transporation system of
America. Many of us just enjoyed discussing what we had found and exchanging
ideas. We did not think we would ever be posting any papers on these topics
where we would need to site our references.
Thus, TIP is now in the situation of having to work backwards. In order to
even consider the articles posted here, the reader has to accept the
assumptions on which they are based to be true. If they challenge those
assumptions, then there is little room for argument until further research
can be done to find the references that support those assumptions.
In some cases, the authors of the articles will endeaver to research and
document their statements. In many cases, it may be a long time before
the authors have the time to do that research. So, if you are interested
in doing the research to document the statements made in the articles on
these web pages, your help would surely be appreciated! We can certainly
point out a set of books where this information is likely to be found.
Also, if you are inclined to write your own articles regarding the topic
of establishing a more balanced transportation infrastructure, then please
do submit them! Naturally, if you can document the facts, figures and other
assumptions in your articles, that would be greatly appreciated and would
avoid making our research backlog even larger.
If you would like to do some research for TIP or submit your own articles,
then click here to send e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you
mention for what you are volunteering. There are many requests for volunteers
on the TrainWeb pages and I won't know what you are volunteering to do unless
you tell me in your e-mail message. Thanks!
