After tracing the history of the Permanent Way Institution's instructional and examining organization until its takeover by the railways in 1944, capabilities currently required of personnel in the field are mentioned, especially instrumentation expertise. Increasing use in the future of mechanized track construction and maintenance equipment is forecast, including the crane method of prefabricated relaying and twin-jib relayers. It is predicted that major formation improvements will be required in Clay county, and necessary resources due to nationalization under the British Railways will provide the right methods and materials.
