Formulates and estimates a long-run cost function for a single, large railroad firm, using time series data. Analyses returns-to-density as well as the tests of the model with respect to: 1) inclusion of quality of service variables, and 2) separability of inputs from outputs in the description of the firm's technology.-from Authors
