DOUBLE SHIFTING RAIL-LAYING EQUIPMENT--WHAT ARE THE ECONOMIC FACTORS

The author states that the same general principles used here to develop the economics of double-shifting rail-laying equipment may also be applied to the double-shifting of other operations, such as track surfacing and tie renewals. A second shift for a rail-laying operation can be practicable, but seldom economical. As an alternative to hiring a second shift, paying indirect fringe benefits and assuming a host of potentially irksome details, working shift No. 1 a slightly longer period is considered.
