The writer is in full agreement with the general corollary that a heavier rail section should be used on curves than on straights and considers that this approach deserves investigation, since it would seem to offer some economic advantages.

The proposed 111 lb rail section is, in the writer's opinion, a good compromise between theoretical knowledge, experience and practical considerations.
