LIFE OF RAIL

Recommendations on rail life and other revisions are adopted to amend the manual regarding operating data required for a study of the economic justification of line and grade revisions. Regarding rail and fastenings, charge should be made only for that portion in excess of that used in the present operation on the basis of experience; in the absence of actual experience, anticipated rail life on a new location under similar operating conditions may be determined with a recommended formula. Recommendations are also made for additional bridging steel, additional creosote trestles, enginehouse additions, additional or other buildings, and additional signals.
