22 The great railroads                                                                                                              
Chessie's Hays T. Watkins says: "We want to be a growth company in every sense of the word, and we believe we will be." That belief is widely shared by Chessie-watchers. This story tells why.
38 Electro-Motive's 100-millionth diesel horsepower                                                                  
It took EMD 27 years to produce its first 50 million horsepower of diesel-electrics, and 13 years for the next 50 million. All indications are that the 150-millionth will come at an even faster pace.
40 The evolution of Locomotivus dieselectricus                                                                   
Although EMD dates the "diesel revolution" from 1938, the year of the 567 diesel engine, it really began a few years before that.
46 What shippers are saying about L&D                                                                                      
The ratio of L&D claims pay-out to revenue has again dropped-but Railway Age's Traffic Poll finds shippers to be far from complacent.
54 The case for higher rail rates                                                                                                
AAR Vice President Richard E. Briggs marshals some forceful arguments to back up the industry's request for a 2-4% rate increase.
57 Productivity tops the AARS agenda                                                                                           
As the superintendents prepare to gather in Kansas City, a scheduled workshop on productivity promises to be particularly productive.
