A Definitive Study Of Your Future In Railroading By Thomas Goodfellow Dust Jacket 1970 FIRST EDITION 142 pages
A railroad is "a permanent road having a line of rails fixed to ties and laid to gauge, usually on a leveled or graded ballasted roadbed, and providing a track for freight cars, passenger cars, and other rolling stock designed to be drawn by locomotives or sometimes propelled by self-contained motors . . . together with all the lands, buildings, rolling stock, franchises, and other assets relating thereto and constituting a single property."
That's according to Webster's Third New International Dictionary.
We all have our own definitions.
To some of us, a railroad is a childhood memory-the lonesome hoot of the whistle as we lay snug in bed. Some have another picture-of lying in bed on the train itself, peeking under the shade to watch the towns flash by-quiet, seemingly empty, familiar yet mysterious. To others, railroads arc the departed glories of "varnish"-highly varnished, wooden passenger cars-and the puffing of the steam engine.
But there is another vision of railroads-a vision of railroads as they are becoming today and will be tomorrow.
It is a vision of power and speed and enormous loads . . . of unit trains carrying a single commodity such as coal in round-the-clock shuttle service . . . of long strings of special railway cars racked high with automobiles fresh from the assembly line . . . of mammoth freight cars hauling huge loads of fluids and other cargo . . . of new turbine locomotives . . . of highspeed passenger trains of radical design streaking through America's urban corridors.
It is a vision of the new kind of railroad-one where banks of computers and sophisticated information-gathering systems provide management with instant knowledge of every single component of a vast rail network . . . where each of almost 2,000,000 freight cars pinpoints itself automatically through a central automatic car-identification system.
The young man or woman who catches that vision will want to take a hard look at America's railroads as a place for a career with a challenging, exciting, and rewarding future.
