While touching upon BN's 1981 corporate restructuring and its effect upon its land grant holdings, Baldwin concentrates on the continued operation of the railroad and its branch lines. "It... is not clear whether any obligation on the part of the railroad has been fulfilled because of the passage of time and the accomplishment of the purposes of the grants, and whether any existing obligation on the part of the railroad extends to branch lines or applies only to the lines expressly mentioned in the grants. It is clear that Congress can take action to clarify these questions, either by legilsation that directs that suit be brought to determine the issues judicially, or that articulates whatever relationship between the value of the lands and the continued operation of the rialroad that Congress determines to be desirable" (from the executive summary).

The Great Northern Steamship Co., created in 1900 to run from Seattle to Yokohama and Hong Kong, was to carry traffic in lumber, wheat, and cotton. Two giant merchant ships, the Dakota and the Minnesota, were completed in 1904. Hill sold rails to Japan. In 1906, the ICC ruled that the overland portion of rail-ship rates was subject to all regulations, including being made public. Since publication of preferential rates offered to export shippers (to compete with subsidized foreign shipping lines) would damage relations with domestic shippers, the railroads were unwilling to continue exports. The Japanese also placed a tariff on wheat. In March 1907 the Dakota struck a rock in Tokyo Bay and sank. The export trade collapsed as shippers used foreign lines for their exports.

Management issues include wilderness allocation, wildlife (including threatened and endangered species such as bald eagle and grizzly bear), and reasonable public and administrative access. Landowners are increasingly attempting to close or restrict access to national forest areas where the U.S. does not have documented road or trail easements. Mechanisms to obtain access include land ownership adjustments; "proving up" or establishing historic access agreements; reciprocity (using the FLPMA Title V requirement that private/public access be made reciprocal); direct right-of-way acquisition, with condemnation as a last resort; cost-sharing agreements for easements and road development (often used with large intermingled corporate landowners such as Burlington Northern. See also Kwiatkowski, 1989, for the Keystone Center's recommendations for dealing with access issues, and Roederer, 1989, for the process used during the year-long Keystone dialogue on access issues).
