An abstract is given of a paper that discusses railway motive power. Emphasis is placed on electrification of the railways coupled with the judicious use of diesel traction as being prime factors for rehabilitation of the British Railways. A strong case is made for electrification based on revised economic data, projections of future passenger and freight traffic, and the need for a properly intergrated system of inland transportation.
