NOW--THE "TUBE" FOR LOCOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE

The mechanical and management information systems groups of the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad have developed an information system for the management of servicing and maintaining 1,300 diesel locomotives. Six major diesel shops work with the same record base which can be retrieved and displayed. The four-phase program has involved (1) Records on running maintenance; (2) Records of locomotive components; (3) Computer processing of locomotive mileages with anticipated parts replacements correlated with service; and (4) Compilation of wheel life, lubricating oil life and maintenance costs.
