Railway Equipment : Forming One of the Twelve Volumes of the Revised and Enlarged Edition of the Science of Railways (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Railway Equipment: Forming One of the Twelve Volumes of the Revised and Enlarged Edition of the Science of Railways I do not set out to write an exhaustive account of railway affairs, but rather to discuss those things which every railroad man may reasonably desire to form a part of his knowledge, if not of his experience. In the early history of railroads ignorance was general. This is no longer the case. Railway men now recognize that they must not only know thoroughly the particular work assigned them, but have more than a cur sory knowledge of the duties of others. No man's experience is, in itself, wide enough to command this knowledge, and it is the object of this work, the result of forty years' practical experience and extended research, in some measure to supply.
