SReturns for diesel electric and electric locomotives represent the number of locomotives, i. e., any combination of locomotive units operated under a single control
* Cumulative figures shown in this statement represent averages of the number of units of equipment reported at the close of each month within the cumulative period.
The averages are computed for each railway separately and then totaled.
