CONTENTS
Service is the key to LCL business . . . ... according to men who decide how their companies' goods will move-the industrial traffic representatives. In latest Railway Freight Traffic survey they call for extension of pickup and delivery.  p 7
NIT League position on Cabinet Report . . . ... was entered before Congressional unit conducting hearings on proposed bills last week. Hearings will close June 15 with added testimony from ICC and Department of Commerce. P 8
FORUM: Improved associations . . . . . . might help the railroads in the performance of their collective functions in such important fields as research, public and community relations, equitable car distribution, and education. The best possible achievement in these areas of industry activity is the only kind the railroads can afford under present-day conditions. . . . p.37
C&O thinks of tomorrow . . . today . . . ... and the result is an active and independent research department which gets into a variety of operating and traffic problems, existing or potential. The research staff has contributed to the development of lightweight passenger equipment, the prototype "Railvan" freight vehicle, better techniques for bracing shipments, reduction of hot boxes, and improved coal unloading procedures, while pursuing more theoretical studies. p38
Super-Railroads . . . ... are the industry's big opportunity, says the Rock Island's John W. Barriger. In a provocative book, just published, he takes stock of the railroads' place today in the scheme of things-and from that point of departure sets down the specifications which he believes the railroads of tomorrow should strive to attain to develop their potential. . . . p.41
Lightweight trains . . .... challenge the signal engineers, because new wheel-and-axle arrangements and new brakes, require, in some cases, new track circuits and appliances, as well as new operating practices, to insure completely safe functioning of protective signals. Union Switch & Signal's George W. Baughman shows that the challenge has been met. . . . p.44
After 45 years . . . ... the North Western station in Chicago got a "spring cleaning." The engineers had to do some neat scaffold building to get at the high arched ceiling without interfering with the use of the waiting room and concourse. P 47
