RRs gird for Seaway battle p. 9
No one knows, for sure, what changes it may bring in rate structures, traffic patterns. There are still a lot of unresolved questions. Answers are probably three or more years away.
Cover Story-Shippers like special-device cars p.13
Railroads and shippers have enlisted special-device cars in the unending fight on damage and today's shippers are happy with the results. Only complaint is, there's not enough cars to meet the demand.
Cover Story-Seatrain's new Seamobile goes to work p.16
Seamobile units are latest step in transportation's trend to containers. Seatrain has them in service between New York and Texas City, Tex. Expansion to other ports is planned.
Cover Story-NYC agents train themselves p.21
The New York Central has developed a home study course to help employees help themselves. Employees helped write the text-and more than 2,500 are now enrolled.
Rubber 'pillows' cut damage p.24
More shippers are using inflatable pneumatic dunnage. As acceptance grows, some roads are running tests of their own. The bags do prevent damage but there's a question as to who will supply them.
Dempster Dinosaur loads itself p.32
New ideas continue to show up as engineers try to marry rail-truck service with interchangeable equipment. Latest plan, using a versatile truck chassis, was demonstrated in Philadelphia last week.
New machine speeds tie jobs p.38
Providing customer service and keeping costs in hand are tasks that challenge the whole railroad. Here's an example from the Santa Fe: a new machine that unloads ties fast, saves money and, in the long run, is another plus for shippers.
Germany likes containers p.41
Interest in containers isn't local to the U.S. The German Federal Railroad has been working with them since 1949.
