A system of assessing numerically the condition of track is briefly described. Track is evaluated for 10 different characteristics and awarded a maximum of 100 points for each. A perfect score is 1000 -- average scores on the L.N.E.R range from 650 to 950. Uniformity of assessment is essential: to this end the judgment of individuals of considerable experience of the system was pooled and a small nucleus was formed which trained others, who again became apostles to spread over a widening field the level of uniform discrimination.
