Train-mile figures for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those for 1935 because of a change in classification of mixed-train mileage. However, this change does not seriously affect comparisons because
total mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 10 percent of total passenger-train mileage.
Owing to a change in classification, the passenger car-miles for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those reported for 1935. Totals against item 10(a) represent, as nearly as possible, the basis of
compilation followed prior to revision of the classification and have been constructed for both years from oar-mile data in published statements covering freight and passenger train performance.

New statistical item effective January 1, 1936. Where prior period figures are not shown they are not available.
b/ Train-mile figures for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those for 1935 because of a change in classification of mixed-train mileage. However, this change does not seriously affect comparisons because the
passenger-train proportion of mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 1.62 percent of total passenger-train mileage.
o/ Owing to a change in classification, the passenger car-miles for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those reported for 1935. Totals against item 10(a) represent, as nearly as possible, the basis of compila-
tion followed prior to revision of the classification and have been constructed for both years froo car-mile data in published statements covering freight and passenger train performance.

SNew statistical item effective January 1, 1936. Where prior period figures are not shown, they are not available.
/ Represents an average of the mileage reported at the close of each month within the period.
STrain-mile figures for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those for 1935 because of a change in classification of mixed-train mileage. However, this change does not seriously affect comparisons
because the passenger-train proportion of mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 1.62 percent of total passenger-train mileage.
o/ Owing to a change in classification, the passenger oar-miles for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those reported for 1935. Totals against item 10(a) represent, as nearly as possible, the basis
of compilation followed prior to revision of the classification and have been constructed for both years from ear-mile data in published statements covering freight and passenger train performance.

* New statistical item effective January 1, 1936. Where prior period figures are not shown they are not available.
b/ Train-mile figures for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those for 1935 because of a change in classification of mixed-train mileage. However, this change does not seriously affect comparisons because the
passenger-train proportion of mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 1.62 percent of total passenger-train mileage.
2/ Owing to a change in olassifioation, the passenger oar-miles for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those reported for 1935. Totals against item 10(a) represent, as nearly as possible, the basis of compile-
tion followed prior to revision of the classification and have been constructed for both years from car-mile data in published statements covering freight and passenger train performance.

passenger-train proportion of mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 1.62 percent of total passenger-train mileage.

New statistical item effective January 1, 1936. Where prior period figures are not shown, they are not available.
SRepresents an average of the mileage reported at the close of each month within the period.
Train-mile figures for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those for 1935 because of a change in classification of mixed-train mileage. However, this change does not seriously affect comparisons
because the passenger-train proportion of mixed-train mileage for the year 1935 was only 1.62 percent of total passenger-train mileage.
g/ Owing to a change in classification, the passenger car-miles for 1936 are not exactly comparable with those reported for 1935. Totals against item 10(a) represent, as nearly as possible, the basis
of compilation followed prior to revision of the classification and have been constructed for both years from car-mile data in published statements covering freight and passenger train performance.
