Track Train Dynamics 2nd Edition

£19.99

Product description

This manual comprises guidelines for improved freight train operation, a composite of current North American railway operating practices, suggesting that standardisation and documentation of successful practices will not only improve operations but be the basis for personnel training. Major emphasis is on promoting proper train handling and those elements which insure this: proper train makeup, track and structure considerations, and locomotive engineer training and/or retraining. The following elements make up the major sections: 1--Definitions and Functions of Equipment; 2--Train Handling; 3--Train Make-up; 4--Track and Structures Considerations; 5--Education of Locomotive Engineers; 6--Implementation of Guidelines. The manual is intended for officers who have responsibility for policy making as it pertains to train operations and for all levels of supervision involved in such functions.
The soft covers are somewhat age toned and soiled, the edges of the text block a little age soiled, there are bumps to corners and edges but all text, b/w charts, graphs and diagrams are extremely clear on clean pages.
