CONTENTS
CPR strike: What did it settle?   p. 9
It cost the railroad an estimated $14 million in revenue and the idled employees $7.5 million in wages. As yet, the nine-day strike by the BLF&E-which shut down nearly half of Canada's railroad industry-may only have proved that public opinion seems to be behind management's efforts to control its labor force, at least where locomotive firemen are concerned.
Ike still supports the Cabinet Report   p.10
President Eisenhower's budget message advised Congress last week that recommendations of the Cabinet Committee are among proposals which "need earnest and prompt attention with a view to determining whether new national policies should be adopted."
Unloading long rails by 'push'   p.24
Strings of continuous welded rail usually are transferred from flat cars to the right of way by pulling the cars out from under them. The D&RGW has developed a technique for pushing the cars ahead as the rails drop down alongside the engine.
One-tracking is possible with CTC   p.26
Retirement of 63 miles of second track and 13 miles of sidings, while retaining adequate track capacity and speeding train movements and increasing top authorized speed, is a result of installing modern controlled signaling on the Bessemer & Lake Erie.
The NYC taps its travel potential   p.29
New emphasis on equipment, rates and scheduling, highlighted in its timetable revisions last fall, is evidence of this road's new concept of passenger service. Its management declares it intends to stay in the passenger business-and to make it pay.
