FUEL CONSERVATION AND TRAIN HANDLING
Several measures of fuel conservation are presented: (1) When charging a train the Revving-Up should not be done unnecessarily or for too long a period of time; (2) Fuel is wasted by excessive use of stretch or power braking; (3) Fuel consumption can be reduced by lowering the train speed, reducing the speed when operating trains consisting of open top equipment, and shutting down diesel engines during layovers.
