Note. Effootive January 1, 1936 Class I steam railways were required to make separate reports of suburban and other than suburban passenger train senlaie.. The tera 'suburban eerviae' relates
to the operation of suburban trains, or trains which are run primarily to handl esuburban pcasengers. Sturbuan paleengers are defined as pusengers Journeying within a metropolitan

trains.
# In making this computation the oar-siles of combination passenger ears haer been divided eqlully between passenger conoh ailes and other passerger-train oarlciles.
