Terry L. Koglin graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. He worked for the Milwaukee Road (the Chicago, Milwaukee, St Paul and Pacific Railroad Company) when they still operated passenger trains and worked as a consultant on many engineering projects on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor. He had professional engineering registrations in several states, but currently only his Pennsylvania license is active. He is a member of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association, and sits on their Steel Structures committee. He has ridden on, inspected, and investigated high-speed and other passenger railroads in North America and Europe, including trains in Canada, Great Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia. He has authored and presented papers on high speed rail for ASCE and IABSE.

High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering looks at the question of where a high-speed passenger rail line would be most productive and how it could be profitable. It investigates the political issues confronting high-speed rail funding and location. This first volume looks at recent achievements in high-speed rail, including record high speeds for trains operating with steel wheels on steel rail. It also covers the history of high-speed rail operations, particularly in the United States.

Volume III of High-Speed Rail Planning, Policy, and Engineering explores the high-speed operations of a hypothetical reconstruction of a former railroad main line between Chicago and New York. The former Pennsylvania Railroad main line between New York and Chicago, via Trenton, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Canton, and Fort Wayne, is studied in its existing condition and under various phases of rehabilitation and reconstruction.
