tered trains for the Federal or State Governments, carrying troops, munitions of war, camp outfits, etc.; miles run while assisting special-service trains, either as pushers or double-headers; miles run while hauling the second cut of a special-service train doubled over grades; miles run by locomotives between terminals or stations, with or without cabooses or passenger-train cars, going for or returning from special service; miles run light by locomotives going to or returning from assisting special-service trains, as pushers or double-headers; miles run light returning to train after having hauled the first cut of a special-service train doubled over grades; miles run light by locomotive of special-service train to and from the next coaling station or water tank for coal or water; miles run light to pick up or assist a special-service train at stations between train terminals; miles run to pick up and haul dead locomotives from special-service trains into terminals; also, miles run by locomotives coming from or going to enginehouses or turntables from special service; provided, no [13 miles be allowed for this latter service if the distance be one-half mile or less in one direction. SWITCHING LOCOMOTIVE-MILES.

Includes miles allowed to locomotives while switching in yards (but not at shops for shop purposes), and allowed to train locomotives for performing switching service at terminals or way stations.

Note A.-Switching miles should be computed at the rate of 6 miles per hour for the actual time engaged in such service in excess of one hour at any one station.

Note B.—Miles run by switching locomotives helping trains out of terminals as well as miles run light returning to the yard after such service should be treated as “Freight,”! "Passenger, etc., according to the class of the train helped.

NONREVENUE SERVICE LOCOMOTIVE-MILES.

Includes miles run by locomotives in the different classes of service described under “Nonrevenue Service Train-Miles,' and, in addition, trial trips of locomotives. to be computed as follows:

(a) In case of trains of the freight class or of the passenger class and trial trips of locomotives, locomotive-miles should be the actual miles run by the loco. motives.

(b) In case of trains of the work class the following rules should be applied: When orders are given to a work train to run to a certain point, to work between certain limits and return, the actual time-card mileage should be allowed between points named in the running order and, in addition, 6 miles per hour for time held between working limits. Work locomotives empleved for switching at shops for shop purposes, for spotting cars in gravel pits, working with pile drivers, ete., should be allowed a mileage of 6 miles per hour for the actual time in service.

RULES FOR COMPUTING LOCOMOTIVE-MILES.

1. All locomotive-miles made in auling trains, except in helping and worktrain service, should be based on the actual distance şun between terminals, to be computed from the official time table or distance table, as prescribed for train. miles.

2. Helping miles of locomotives should be based on the actual distance made with trains in helping service or in doubling hills.

3. Work-train locomotive-miles should be computed according to the rules prescribed for work-train miles.

4. Light locomotive-miles should be based on the actual distance locomotires run light, or with only a caboose, for the entire distance between terminals. [14

TEXT OF CLASSIFICATION OF TRAIN-MILES.

REVENUE SERVICE.

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 revenue 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 train, 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 equip. ment. When one or 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.

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 terminals 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.
