Ex- perience of rough-and-rea- dy railr- oad engineers shows that low-- , speed freight service can be maint- ained over track laid with little ballast even over unstable ground such' as would be encountered along part of the route. Just as in the case of older railroads there would be crews of trackmen continually re-build- ing the road but this prob- ably would be little more than would be needed on a freight high- way. One freight train would carry many times the burden of a whole convoy of trucks. The fuel for the locomoi'.ves would be obtainable from Alaskan and other coal mines whereas the gasoline for trucks would have to be hauled in tanks from the south.
