The record of the track inspection car is used in two ways. One is to find out remarkable irregularities and another is to afford data for making up maintenance plans. For the former purpose the record itself is enough but for the latter purpose some extraction of information from the record is needed. Formerly, manual data reduction was executed. Though the process of data reduction is very simple, it requires enormous man-hour. By the accomplishment of the new track inspection car, we can measure more than 500 km in a day. This new system can be said to be reliable enough and has been in operation since April, 1961, for the inspection of track covering more than 20,000 km all over the country.
