ARTICLE I
It happens that I have never switched cars, but I have been flirting with box cars from the days as a kid when my foster uncle used to ride me around on the engine in Gratiot Yard in St. Louis. He was an engine foreman-they could do those things in those days and a lot of other things not necessary to record.
Have spent more than 40 years watching the railroad machine grow larger and heavier, including impacts.
Since railroading is a play of forces in motion, we have the possibility of damage, because under the laws of motion or movement, we must have impact, starts and stops, speed, slips, slides and slams. They are as necessary as the black squares in a crossword puzzle, but we want less of it and to this end we poke and prod, and plead and praise, plot and plan and preach and pray and push and pull, talk and think, and write and work-that is-some of us do.
In 1907, the railroads organized the Bureau of Explosives. Col. B. W. Dunn left the army to head the Bureau, the idea was to stop the many explosive accidents which all train and yard men will remember as regular happenings. They were stopped, or practically so.
One of Col. Dunn's first jobs was to determine how much force packages had to withstand in freight cars so that he could prescribe safe container and loading regulations.
