All we can see is the front ofiL What's behind that engine wouldn't we give a lot to know! It may be a year of joy or a year of tragedy. It may  u. progress and prosperity or dash our hopes. For the railroads, as for the nation, this is a time for planning and for preyer. There are so many things we cannot guess or know. BUT THIS WE DO KNOW: On our railroad, as in our nation, there is the calm confidence of abihty to meet the needs of 1941. We on the Illinois Central have in our hearts and minds the fruits of nearly ninety years of railway operating experience. Czcums are nothing new to an organization and a plant like ours. We have carried through them in the past, and we will continue to carry on. We have just completed a year in which, besides meetln 8 all traffic demands, we continued our preparation to handle future needs. We modernized approximately 100 freight locomotives, bought more than 5,000 and rehuilt more than 5,700 freight cars, reduced our percentage of tempo- rerily unusable freight cars to 1.6, edded notably to our diesel-electrlc switch- ing and transfer fleet, installed one long-distance diesel-electric streamline passenger train and had in use or under construction three smaller units for shorter runs. SO REMEMBER THIS: Wenever 1941 approaches a turning point in Illinois Central territory, it will find a railroad ready for action and wide awake at the switch.
