PROGRESS IN RAILWAY MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (1974-1975 REPORT OF SURVEY COMMITTEE) CARS AND EQUIPMENT

This survey of the annual ASME report covers some of the major developments in freight and passenger equipment made public in the last calendar year. Because of federal legislation and, in general, a continuing shortage of oil, the need for cars to haul low sulfur coal is still large. The establishment of "Rail Box" has created a large need for a "standardized" general purpose box car. In the people transport area, rapid transit is continuing to grow and new equipment is in the offing for Amtrak.
