about

A revision of the classic text on railroad engineering, considered the ``bible' of the field for three decades. Presents railroad engineering principles quantitatively but without excessive resort to mathematics, and applies these principles to day-by-day design, construction, operation, and maintenance. Relates practice to principles in an orderly, sequential pattern (subgrade, ballast, ties, rails). Applicable to both conventional railroads and rapid transit systems.
About the author William W. Hay is Professor Emeritus of Railway Civil Engineering at the University of Illinois and is a domestic and foreign railroad consultant. Prior to his academic career, he spent 16 years in the engineering and maintenance departments of several major railroads and the military railway service. Dr. Hay is author...
