And the Cars Came
Railroads Make Good on Promise
to Move All Business Offered
A low freight rate and no cars in which to ship is
as unsatisfactory as a low price for bread and no .
Heretofore, fall harvest has brought a widespread
shortage. Last year it was 140,000 cars. This year
there is generally a surplus of cars throughout the
country and especially of box cars in the West and
Northwest, notwithstanding the roads are handling
the greatest volume of business in their history.
For 1923, all the railroads of the United States
joined in a co-operative effort and with a defined
program to improve traffic conditions and to establish
new standards of service, even excelling pre-war
records. In fulfilling this program, 134,636 new
freight cars and 2,963 new locomotives were put in
service between January and October, 1923, a larger
number than in any similar period within the past
Remarkable progress has been made in reducing
the number of locomotives and cars awaiting repairs,
86.3 per cent of the locomotives and 93.3 per cent of
the cars being in serviceable condition in October.
More railroad coal has been placed in stock pile
storage and more commercial coal dumped at Lake
Erie ports than in any previous year, thus making
equipment available for other necessary traffic during
From an average movement of 22 miles per day,
(including idle time) in 1921, the railroads made 29.2
miles in September, 1923.
In the 42 weeks from January 1 to October 20,
1923, the railroads loaded and moved 40,545,620 cars,
which was an increase of 18 per cent over 1922 and
10 per cent over the record year of 1920.
Ins't this a splendid tribute to the efficincy of the
carriers and the co-operation of shippers?
T,he roads are spending this year 700 million dollars
for new epuipment and 400 million dollars for other
improvements. Years ago James J. Hill, the great
railroad builder of the Northwest, said that the roads
must spend one billion dollars every year for addi
tions and betterments to keep abreast of the country 's
growing traffic, but this is the first year in twelve
that the railroads have found it possible to obtain
that amount. Such expenditures have a vital bear
ng on .national prosperity, contributing to theexpan
i on of industry and employment of labor, increas
ng the demand for products of mine, forest and
This $1,100,000,000 being spent in 1923 is almost
entirely new money, and not taken from earnings.
, The expenditure is. based on the conviction that the
American people will encourage compensatory rates
and discourage attempts to embarras the railroads in
their efforts to provide adequate service. It is not
predicted on present earnings for even in this record
breaking year, it is unlikely that the roads will earn
the 5.75 per cent on their valuation permitted by the
Interstate Commerce Commission under the Trans
portation Act, but which if they do not earn they do
Anti-railroad laws produce no freight cars.
Constructive suggestions are always welcome.
