“The Intermodal Terminal Facilities data set contains geographic data for trailer-on-flatcar (TOFC) and container-on-flatcar (COFC) highway rail and/or rail-water transfer facilities in the United States. Attribute data specify the intermodal connections at each facility; i.e., the modes involved in the transfer, the AAR reporting marks of the railroad serving the facility, the type of cargo (always containers/trailers), and the direction of the transfer.” Attributes are largely from 1996-97. Because of the frequent turnover of this type of facility, some of the terminals included in the database may now be dormant or permanently closed."
This data set was compiled by Bernardin-Lochmueller and Associates, using data believed to be accurate; however, a degree of error is inherent in all data. This product is distributed "AS-IS" without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including but not limited to warranties of suitability of a particular purpose or use. No attempt has been made in either the designed format or production of these data to define the limits or jurisdiction of any federal, state, or local government. These data are intended for use only at the published scale or smaller and are for reference purposes only. They are not to be construed as a legal document or survey instrument. A detailed on-the-ground survey and historical analysis of a single site may differ from this data.
“Attribute data were extracted from the IANA 1997 Rail Intermodal Terminal Directory, the Official Railway Guide; the TTX Company Intermodal Directory; World Wide Web home pages of Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Conrail, CSX Transportation, Kansas City Southern, and Norfolk Southern; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Port Series Reports; Containerization International Yearbook; 1996 AAPA Directory; and various transportation news sources both in print and on the Internet. Attribute data reflect conditions at TOFC/COFC facilities during 1995-96 and are subject to frequent change. Some facilities may be dormant or permanently closed.”
“All point records are represented by a single coordinate Pair and a unique feature identifier of the form SSCCC NNNN, where SS is the 2-digit State FIPS code, CCC is the 3-digit county FIPS code, and NNNN is a sequence number within the state/county. Attribute data are matched to specific point records using this identifier.”
“The database includes TOFC/COFC facilities and marine container terminals with rail connections which were listed the IANA 1997 Rail Intermodal Terminal Directory, the January/February 1997 edition of the Official Railway Guide; the TTX Company Intermodal Directory; the World Wide Web home pages of Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, Conrail, CSX Transportation, Kansas City Southern, and Norfolk Southern; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Port Series Reports; Containerization International Yearbook; 1996 AAPA Directory; and various transportation news sources both in print and on the Internet. The database does not include TOFC/COFC and marine container facilities known to have been closed before or during 1996. However, because of the frequent turnover of this type of facility, some of the terminals included in the database may now be dormant or permanently closed.”
“The locations of TOFC/COFC facilities were Determined using available facility address information and MapExpert, a commercial nationwide digital map database and software package, and recording the longitude/latitude of the approximate center of the facility. Facility locations are not bound to any current or previous highway, railway, or waterway network models.”
