Abstract

The primary purpose of this paper is to compare the background and experiences of two large-scale railway construction programs in Japan and the Soviet Union: The Shinkansen and the Baikalo-Amur Magistral (BAM). The paper describes: (1) Those main aspects of the programs which may be compared. (2) The history and importance of the programs. (3) The organization, design and implementation of the two programs. (4) The technical side of the programs. (5) The influence and future of the programs.

Although the programs differ in many respects it was possible to compare many features (economic, environmental, population and other aspects). The paper is intended to provide the background for future work on organizational problems; moreover, the BAM program might become a possible case study for IIASA.
