NOTES ON RAILROAD LOCATION AND CONSTRUCTION PROCEDURES FROM THE SCHOOL OF EXPERIENCE
This book, as indicated by its title, was born of the many years of practical experience of a railroad location engineer who, having retired from railroad service, was impelled to set down in writing a series of notes and comments, which, for the most part, may appropriately be termed short-cut methods or "tricks of the trade" in railroad location, relocation and construction procedures, for the benefit of young engineers who may become engaged in such work. Indeed, the book represents more than the experience of the author because, as he generously pointed out in submitting the manuscript for publication, much of the information incorporated was gained from association with older and more experienced engineers, few of whom ever placed their ideas in printed form. And as well be readily observed, many of the principles and practices outlined are equally adapted to highway location and construction.
