A summary is given for replies received from 31 administrations, to whom a questionnaire was circulated by the International Railway Congress Association. The report covers both lines worked by secondary railway companies and the secondary lines of main-line railway systems. Large and small gang maintenance categories are examined and their characteristics discussed. Maintenance cycles and their structure and methodologies are discussed. The article concludes that long-distance gangs, being better organized, supervised and checked, definitely improve the quality of the work and facilitate supervision by the district officer.
