DescriptionA trend may develop in which railroads become lifelines between rural and urban populations. For instance, the railroad along the Potomac River presently serves commuters from Washington's western suburbs. The railroad could be used to reclaim surface mined areas in the upper portion of the Potomac. These same lines can also open western Maryland as a recreation resource to Washington, D.C., residents. Multiple use of railroads is a trend recreationists would find beneficial.
