One of the most difficult problems encountered in the successful administration of our railroads is that offered by the weak roads. This problem is a stumbling block that obstructs the efforts of legislators and economists in working out a coordinated system of transportation. It must be considered when a rate structure is under contemplation, and it must be recognized in the formation of any plan for voluntary or compulsory consolidation. In fact, the weak road is one of the "weak links" in what might otherwise be an efficient chain of transportation units.In this thesis some of the phases of this problem will be discussed. An effort will be made to find out just what constitutes and causes weakness , and suggestions will be offered looking to a solution of the problem.
