Synopsis: It is unnecessary for me to point out in detail what I regard as the most valuable features of this work, as my judgment may be warped by the circumstances that I have found certain subjects more interesting than others. I ndeed, in my judgment, every work must stand or fall upon its own merits, and nothing that an author can say in reference to it can avail to change the ultimate verdict of those who subject it to the decisive practical tests that they are called upon to apply in the discharge of their duties. I desire to express my sincere thanks to the Railway Public for the generous reception accorded my former efforts, and trust that in this work I may be deemed, in some degree at least, to have made good my pledges to the gentlemen who requested the preparation by me of a more comprehensive work on the same subject. The number of contributors, inventors, locomotive works and mechanical journals who have rendered assistance are too numerous to admit of my thanking them by name, but I beg here to renew to them all the acknowledgments which have already been made to each in person. C. McS. Chicago, January 21, 1899.
