The author stresses the importance of immediate emphasis on railroad maintenance as well as on R&D in maintenance equipment design and the effects of track-train dynamics. Four major qualifications of a maintenance officer should be: (a) a total and intimate knowledge of the railroad property; (b) familiarity with the staff; (c) a knowledge of inherent maintenance problems; (d) the aptitude to be a super planner. The author concludes by insisting on the importance of procuring and continually training qualified staff.
