Illinois Central System Tells About
Shortage of Transportation
We are now in one of tho;-e periods when tha business of the country, including agriculture,
suffers severe losses by reason of the shortage of railway transportation the inability of the rail
' roads to move promptly all of the traffic awaiting shipment
The Illinois Central System is leaving nothing undone in its efforts to meet tho situation. In
our October statement we showed that we have this year added to our rolling equipment new cars
and locomotives costing a total of more than (14,'')0,000. These purchases Included sixty-five loco
motives. Since that statement was published we have purchased, in addition, seventy-five lai-pe
freight locomotives, making a total of 140 locomot vei purchased this year. However, we are hand
ling the largest traffic in the hlntory ot this system, and our patrons doubtless will continue to be
inconvenienced by the general shortage of transportation facilities.
The miners' strike, which continued tor nearly five months, and the railway shopmen's strike
have naturally had an effect upon the present shortage ot transportation, but the main cause goes
far deeper than those strikes.
What Is commonly called 'the "car shortage" is in reality a shortage of all hinds ot railway
facilities, Including locomotives, freight cars, pass'ng tracks, terminal facilities, etc. For a number
of years the rate at' which the railroads have been able to increase their facilities has gradually fallen
off, while the ton mileage hauled, which represents the public demand for transportation, has been
In the seven years ended with 1907 the number of locomotives increased 2,500 a year, and the
number of freight cars 90,000 a year. In the next seven years the number of locomotives increased
only l,6(fu a year, and the number of freight cars only 50,000 a year. In the seven years ended wltn
1921 the number of locomotives increased only 25 a year, and the number of freight cars only
6,000 a year. - The increase In the number ot locomotives lu tho soveu years ended with 1921 was
only one-ninth as great as in the seven years endel with 1&07, "while the increase In the number of
freight cars was only one-fifteenth as great. The decline in the amount and capacity of the equlp-
ment provided has been accompanied by a corresp jnding decline in other facilities. This condition
cannot continue -without causing frequently recurring losses ot a serious nature to the country.
During perlodB ot business depression, when there is a surplus of transportation, the railroads
should be most active in enlarging and extending their facilities for future needs, but that has not
been possible In the past because business depressions have ' been acompanied by widespread 'de
mands for reduced rates. Such agitations discourage railway managements when questions ot recom
mending extensive and costly lmvrovementa are being considered and drive Investora awuy from
railway securities. When the confidence of Investirs In railway securities is fully restored, "Wgfj
expenditures for additions and betterments can be made, and the railroads will then be able to sup
ply all necesary transportation. This Is the "rall.vay question" In a nutshell.
What the country needs badly are many leaders among business men, farmers and workers
wtih vision to see that business,' including agrlcul.ure, must have ample railway service, and with
courage to tell the truth about the transportation situation. Upon the attitude of the publto toward
tho railroads will depend whether such crises as the present one are to be avoided in the future.
