Excerpt from The Pennsylvania Railroad System: Information for Employes and the Public

The entire Pennsylvania Railroad System, whose 26,000 miles of track serve more than half the people of the United States, completed two years without a single one of the 361,572,114 passengers carried in that period being killed in a train accident. Figures for November and December of 1915 were necessarily estimated.

This record of two years means the safe operation by day and by night, through fog and snow, storm and clear weather, of no less than 2,400,000 passenger trains, while at the same time approximately as many more freight trains were being cared for.

The Lines East of Pittsburgh have completed their third successive year without a single train accident fatality to one of the 320,000,000 people carried in the three-year period.

It is a record of which the Pennsylvania may well be proud, and for which a tribute of praise is due every employe, from the President down to the humblest man on the pay roll... Efficient management guarantees the safety of the Pennsylvania's passengers. There is no luck about it.
