In search of best practice - Grafton Division trial

The visit of State Rail Authority Officers and Union Representatives to North America to see first hand examples of World's Best Practice in Track Maintenance and for discussion and inspection with selected systems is described. Railroads visited were Norfolk Southern, Illinois Central and Union Pacific. Recommendations on strategic directions in key areas are given as well as detailed summaries of observations, inspections and discussion. The underlying objective of the visit was to investigate the potential for reduction of recurrent Authority expenditure and to produce an Infrastructure organisation capable of competing successfully in a deregulated marketplace for infrastructure work in consultation with staff and Unions.
