    Excerpt from Current Railway Problems

    The railways provided a special train, consisting of a loco motive and business car, for which the state paid the actual running-cost. One or more members of the commission and two of its engineers, accompanied by general or division offi cers of the road on whose line the train happened to he, went in this train over each road. The detailed reports of the road were taken along. The train moved slowly to permit con stant observations of the character and standards of con struction and maintenance. Frequent stops were made, often once in a mile, usually once in two miles, sometimes only once in five miles, when the party got out, and the commis sion's engineers ascertained the amount and nature of the ballast for some distance along the roadway, the depth and character of cuts and fills, the weight and age of rails and fastenings, the number of ties per mile, etc. The facts found were constantly compared with the reports of the railways, and noted in the engineers' field-books. The terminals in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth were examined foot by foot. Stations, shops, cattle-pens, etc., were investigated, and the railways' reports about them checked with the same thoroughness.

    Rolling stock used on interstate roads was appraised on a mileage basis, it being assumed that the standards of each interstate road were about the same for its entire line as they were in Minnesota.
