The value of constant vigilance, close attention to details, and the determination by diligent study and application to master the intricacies of the machinery and apparatus with which the electric railway operative is entrusted cannot be too forcibly urged. Economical and efficient operation are the fruits only of conscientious, and intelligent work. In some capacities, notably among them that of motorman, the necessity for careful and intelligent attention to his duties is particularly far reaching. The motorman should be capable not only of operating his car over the route with all of its apparatus in good working order; but he should also be a man full of resources, and determination, ready for the many emergencies liable to arise in the operation of an electric car. In order to furnish the student with a reliable guide and counselor which would enable him to act intelligently when the crisis comes, the following pages treating upon railway troubles have been prepared.
The best results deduced from the exercise of judgment and experience in the operating and repair of electric railway apparatus in the past, coupled with the more advanced knowledge of today, have been compiled and are now presented to the seeker after information. This applies more specially to motors, although quite a large space is devoted to air brake apparatus, and car heating, and lighting also.
