Abstract:

The report represents an in-depth comprehensive analysis of NAD Cranes railroad maintenance of way MW program. Quantitative tools have been developed to provide a rational framework for decision making for MW. This analysis was prompted by the occurrence of numerous derailments attributed to poor track conditions. The safety aspects of derailments of hazardous material including high explosives required a thorough analysis of causes related to operations of the Ordnance Department and the Public Works Transportation, Maintenance, and Maintenance Control Division. The report presents several recommendations for the establishment of annual levels of maintenance, recommendations on the equipment required, and recommendations on the priority use of maintenance resources.
