The purpose of this booklet, as of its predecessors, is to bring to the attention of its readers the facts regarding our railroads.
The presentation in the following pages is largely graphic and statistical. It portrays, in spite of depression and increased competition, an almost unbroken record of improved efficiency and economy in railroad operation. Yet this story, striking as it is, is far from complete.
To it must be added the results of inventive genius upon the railroads and in allied industries; the research conducted into every phase of railroad operation; the development and construction of new types of equipment, light-weight cars, streamlined trains and locomotives; the inauguration and extension of pick-up and delivery service; the remarkable advances in air-conditioning; the equally remarkable increases in the speed of passenger trains; the certainty and reliability of rail service; and, most important of all the matchless safety record of the steam lines. The whole story of the railroads in the past decade, and particularly during the depression, is a story of physical progress unequaled in any similar span of years in the past. Yet the financial position of the carriers remains precarious.
Most of the statistics used in the following pages have been taken from official reports and compilations of the Interstate Commerce Commission. This Committee is also indebted to the Bureau of Railway Economics for various figures contained herein.
