About two years ago it became evident that the number of young men in the supervisory force of the Rock Island was growing. Some had five years or less of track experience. It was realized that a training program was needed not only to educate the trackmen and supervisors lacking experience but also to serve as a refresher course for the more experienced personnel. To assure having the type of training that was felt to be necessary, it was decided that the railroad would have to conduct this instruction itself. Another decision was that the training could best be handled by issuing a series of "track maintenance letters" in which the various maintenance matters that were considered basic and important would be discussed one at a time.
