Description

Excerpt from Reports of Commission Appointed to Inquire Into Hydro Electric Railways: Containing Majority and Minority Reports and Appendices The proposed radial railways are singular in certain respects. The cost of construction per mile is admittedly high; the operating costs, upon the evidence as a whole, are low; the anticipated revenues are higher than experience has found to be attainable, elsewhere except under unusual conditions, The per mile cost of operation is low. The operating ratio is low. Operating men of experience, we were told, could go over a territory, observe the number and location of the population, the character of the industries, and the like, and arrive at a fairly reasonable and reliable estimate of the business which might be expected to be done and the cost of operation of a road of a particular type.
