M/W PRODUCTIVITY: "GOOD MACHINES ARE NO GOOD STANDING IDLE"
Machines that will perform work better, faster and with fewer men are one way to greater productivity in the maintenance-of-way department--but not the only one. Maybe it's not even the most important means of making the most effective use of the M/W dollar. Certainly, it's important for a railroad to have the latest machines for maintaining track. But the interests of productivity are not being served if this equipment speeds a good part of the working hours sitting idle because trained personnel is lacking for making repairs when breakdowns occur. Neither are the interests of optimum productivity being served if price or cost is put ahead of durability in the purchase of materials or in the conduct of work.
