    Periodic inspection, maintenance, and tests are of paramount importance in railroading since safety of operation must be assured at all times. “Safety First” is an old slogan in railroading dating back to the early days in the industry. It is usually associated directly with train operation, but successful train operation also depends on quality control of the materials and parts used on the motive power and car equipment as well as on proper maintenance of this equipment and track, roadbed and related facilities so that all will serve their intended function with the desired reliability and safety in service.
