By combining and reorienting its track maintenance forces, increasing mechanization and concentrating their activities, Missouri Pacific has increased productivity and controlled costs. The use of two crews, with each assigned to lay a single string of rail in the same track a day apart, has been a feature of the new system. Special crews perform other functions such as rebuilding crossings and turnouts. Attention is directed at perennial soft spots with various methods of stabilization being used.
