Car shortage fears mounting P. 9
With 8.6 per cent of the nation's freight cars unserviceable, many shippers fear that current repair programs may be "too little, too late." Here's the coast-to-coast freight car outlook, as reported exclusively to Railway Age by shipper board chairmen.
CPR is firm on the fireman issue p.12
The "firemen off" rule will not be reconsidered, N. R. Crump, CPR president, tells Railway Age in an exclusive interview. Firemen's chief Gilbert errs in saying Royal Commission findings were imposed, Mr. Crump also says.
Better track with machines p.16
A one-man-operated machine keeps CofGa track in good condition between visits of out-of-face surfacing gang. The machine "picks up" 30 to 60 joints a day.
GN cools diesels with boiling water p.18
The Vapor Phase cooling system maintains circulating water close to its boiling point. The warmer engine operates more efficiently and with cleaner combustion, even though it uses economy fuels.
PRR diners keep the market in mind p.27
The road's dining car service ratio holds at a creditable 125, despite constantly rising costs. It's done by analyzing the market, then providing the exact service for which a need is indicated.
ICC reports on Erie wreck p.32
Commission finds that failure to deliver a right-of-track train order caused an Erie collision last August.
The Action Page p.38
Railroads must persuade shippers and regulators that the railroads' first duty is to provide efficient transportation. Besides being as efficient as they can, railroads also must strive for the fairer basis for meeting government-financed competition.
