IN the history of engineering achievement there is nothing aptly com- parable to what has been accomplished in electric railway development.
In the short period of about ten years which span the life of commercial electric railway work, phenomenal results have been obtained, and from the few struggling lines of the late eighties the growth has been such that today there are in the United States alone more than 40,000 electric cars, running over nearly 15,000 miles of track, and yielding profitable returns on the enormous capital investment of one thousand five hundred million dollars,- a magnificent enterprise considered from whatever point.
The wide-spread interest in the field, and its importance in a business as well as an engineering sense, prompted, over a year ago, the publication of a special issue of CASSIER'S MAGAZINE in which should be embodied everything about electric railways that would appeal to the engineer, the capitalist, and the public generally. Some of the foremost engineers in the electric railway field were, therefore, secured as contributors, illustrations were gathered from all corners of the world, and the final outcome has been this volume,-a text-book on electric railway engineering which, it is hoped, will prove of interest and value to all.
