FOUR HUNDRED MILLION TONNES--AN ODYSSEY

Australia's Mt. Newman railroad was constructed in the late 1960s to American standards in one of the most inhospitable areas on the earth. Traffic has steadily increased as iron-ore demand grew. The railroad has experienced problems with its loading and unloading operations, roller bearings, locomotive reliability and line capacity. Emphasis is now on automatic car inspection, computer-based train control systems and redefinition of track standards.
