What benefit items from railroad investment are evaluated, and how those items are quantified have profound impacts on the feasibility of the proposed investments. They also have implications on the projects priorities, not to mention on intermodal comparison between highway and railroad. Evaluation procedures currently being utilized in Korea show limits in fully evaluating railroads' investment impacts. Economic and practical implications are evaluated for including revenues for railroad investment. Based on the critical evaluation of procedures in other countries, and based on the analysis of Korea's national transportation goals, new and improved benefit items are redefined and Quantification guidelines are proposed.
