with the average train of 1894 woull
have required running 1,GOO,000,000
trains miles instead of 038,000,000, or
ICO per cent more thnitthb train mil
eage actually run -it) j?l4. Even tho
average loading of 307.8 tons In 1904
would have required running 930,000,
000 train miles in 1914 Instead of G3S,
000,000. In 1894 tho railroads of tho
United States handled 80.33G.000.000
tons of freight one mile and In 1914
a total of 288,319,000,000 tons ono
mile. This 1h nn Increnso of 2B9 per
cent, but It was handled with only 42
per cent moro train miles. The 1914
j ton mllengo represents nn Increase of
, 05 per cent over that of 1904, which
j was 174,022,000,000, but It required an
Increase of only 12.5 per cent In train
miles, snys tho Hallway Ago Gazette.
Tho avorogo cost of operation per
train mllo for all trains, as shown ny
tho interstate commorco commission
roports, was $1.31 in 1904 and $1.77
In 1914. Tho cost per train mllo In
frolght-scrvlco Is considerably higher
than tho avorngo for both freight and
passcngor service. Whllo It Is Impos
sible to state exactly tho cost of oper
ation for a. freight train mllo It Is
evident that n saving of 9G2.000.000
train miles means a saving of hun
dreds of millions of dollars annually
In operating expenses.
