ECONOMIC SURVEY OF AXLES WITH OVERHEATED JOURNALS
The AAR Interchange Rule No. 84 is discussed, which requires an axle that overheated in service to be removed, the journal scored and cut, and the axle scrapped. This action was justified since a principal cause of broken journals is a result of continued use by not being detected when overheated. The net costs of scrapping these axles are discussed. The costs are expected to be more than offset by a reduction in journal failures.
