RAILROADS OF THE HOUR

United States railroads are in an adverse competitive position with motor trucks, passenger buses and airlines. This account of many of the major national railroads has a foreword which makes a plea for a national transportation policy using all means of transportation and which asks for a reorganization of railroads operation on a fair but self-supporting basis. The book discusses the operational set-up, the special problems and characteristic features of the great rail lines which cross our country.
