NOW, THIS IS THE WAY TO RUN A RAILROAD

This is a report of the Florida East Coast Railway's operations and management techniques in the 12th year of its strike by operating unions. The 530-mile railroad has completely restructured its operations and rebuilt its physical plant. Freight trains are run strictly by timetable with two-man crews operating the entire length of the mainline between Jacksonville and Miami. Minimizing of operating labor costs and other techniques have enabled FEC to show a return on investment substantially higher than the U.S. average.
