FREIGHT TRAIN-MILES.

Includes miles run by revenue-earning trains to transport freight, which do not regularly include a car or cars devoted exclusively or principally. to passenger business; also miles run by trains consisting of empty freight cars and of trains consisting of a locomotive and a caboose running light between terminal stations on account of unbalanced traffic or other causes. When milk, express, baggage, or other cars are hauled in a freight ain, their earnings should be classed as freight earnings and the miles of the train should be considered as freight train-miles. Freight trains that regularly haul no passenger-service equipment, but transport passengers in a caboose should be classed as freight trains, as should also freight trains temporarily using a passenger car in place of a caboose. PASSENGER TRAIN-MILES.

Includes miles run by revenue-earning trains to transport passengers, baggage, mail, and express, also miles run by trains consisting of deadhead passenger equipment. When one more cars other than regular passenger-train cars, such as milk cars, cabooses deadheaded back, etc., are hauled in a passenger train, the miles run by that train should be considered as passenger train-miles. MIXED TRAIN-MILES.

Includes miles run by revenue-earning trains to transport both passengers and freight in cars, each of which is devoted exclusively to either passenger business or freight business. SPECIAL TRAIN-MILES.

Includes miles run by revenue-earning trains, such as chartered trains, paid for either on the basis of a rate per mile run or a lump sum for the train; circus and theatrical trains run under contracts calling for payment of specified amounts for transportation between designated stations; chartered trains for the Federal or State Governments carrying troops, munitions of war, camp outfits, etc. (16

or

NONREVENUE SERVICE TRAIN-MILES.

Includes miles run by trains which are not revenue producing, such as:

(a) of the Passenger Class: Pay-trains, official trains, inspection trains for Railway Commissioners, special trains run to convey fire apparatus for use in saving the company's property from destruction by fire, and trains run to convey employees to and from work;

(b) of the Freight Class: Material and supply trains; and

(c) Of the Work Class : Construction trains, trains hauling gravel or other ballast, or engaged in bank widening, ballasting, and other maintenance work; wreck. ing trains, repair trains, snow-plows, and flangers.

RULES FOR COMPUTING TRAIN-MILES.

1. Revenue Train-Miles should be based on the actual distance run between ter. minals and computed from the official time-table or distance table, the same as passenger-miles, ton-miles, and car-miles.

2. Revenue passenger trains and revenue mixed trains may incidentally carry pri. vate cars, official cars, work or service cars, or cars of related classes; and revenue

AND TRAIN-MILES.

(FIRST ISSUE.)

freight trains may incidentally carry cars containing railway material and supplies, or other freight which does not earn revenue; but whole trains of such cars should be regarded as nonrevenue trains and classed accordingly.

3. Nonrevenue Train-Miles should be based on the actual distance run between terminals. When work trains are run between terminals and not ordered to work at some specified point or within specified working limits, the actual miles run should be allowed to them, the same as to any other class of trains. When ordered to run to a certain point to work at that point or within specified working limits, the actual miles made while under running orders should be allowed to them, and in addition an arbitrary mileage of 6 miles per hour for the time working at the point or within the working limits named.

4. Each train and each section of a train run by a separate train crew should be considered a separate train, whether hauled by one or more locomotives for either the whole distance or a part of the distance between the train terminals. There should be nothing added to this distance to cover running from enginehouse to terminal, doubling hills, running for water, switching or other work at way stations, or for the service of helper or pusher locomotives or the extra locomotives on double or triple head trains.

5. Mileage of trains detoured over foreign roads when hauled by the locomotives and handled by the crews of the home company should be computed on the (17 basis of miles actually run and classified by the detouring line in its train mileage in accordance with the service performed.
